Careers Information – Year 10
The Work Experience programme is launched in the Autumn Term. The week of work experience takes place at the beginning of Year 11, June 11th-15th 2018 but preparation all takes place during Year 10. Students are actively encouraged to take ownership of the process by choosing their own placements, with help and guidance where appropriate.
There are a variety of activities to prepare the students for the world of work including CV Writing workshops, formal letter workshops, preparation for college and apprenticeship interviews and a mock interview conducted by professionals from the business and further education sectors.
To help students prepare for the choices they must make, guest speakers from local colleges and training providers are invited to speak to the students in assemblies,
Each year students are invited to take part in a trip to University as part of the school’s inspiration agenda.
Universities recently visited include Birmingham, Birmingham City and Worcester
