Why is it important?
The Importance of Work Experience. Employers prefer students with work experience. … Develop key skills: A work placement provides the opportunity for a student to develop key employability skills such as problem-solving, teamwork, communication and time management that employers look for.
We run a work experience placement within the Sixth Form at the end of Year 12. This year is starts Monday 15th July and runs until Friday 19th July 2019. Students within the Sixth Form must arrange their own placement so that they are happy with the arrangements.
How to arrange a placement?
Simply download the agreement form, print it and complete the relevant sections. This must be handed back into the Sixth Form Office. After this, go and enjoy the placement. On your last placement day make sure that the employer completes the ’employer report form’. This can be downloaded below.
