Vocational and employment
Work experience is planned and provided for all students where appropriate. Vocational experiences in real working environments provide students with opportunities to practise the skills they have developed within the school setting. In the 3-year Sixth Form model students will spend two years trying different work experience placements and in their third year are given the choice over which placement they prefer.
Placements currently include a supermarket, hotel, warehouse and café where our students have a wide variety of responsibilities and are supported to develop their skills. The outcome from the placements should be that students are able to identify what area they would like to work in and what support they will need to achieve this.
We are always on the lookout for new opportunities for our learners. If you would like to offer a placement to one of our students, please get in touch.
