Work Experience 2024
Year 10 will be completing a weeks work experience from Monday 15th July to Friday 19th July 2024
During their work experience week pupils will gain real industry and employment experience. This vital part of their school year has been in the planning since September where during their Personal Development lessons last term, they were given guidance on creating a CV and an application letter. More information on how to do this can be found here
Year 10 have been asked to find three potential employers and they now need to start the application process by sending letters to employers.. Pupils will be supported through this process by Personal Development teachers, tutors and Mrs Jenkins, our careers lead.
