Year 12 Work Experience

Work experience is a compulsory element of post 16 education and the college has an obligation to engage all 16-19 year olds in a quality work experience that is aligned with their career aspirations or program of study. We have set a designated week for the work experience (11th - 15th February 2019) but there are some providers who may offer alternative dates. As long as these are outside of the public examination period in May/June, it is fine for students to undertake work experience on different dates and then use the ‘work experience week’ to study at home. Bev Killingbeck, our Work Experience Co-ordinator and Julie Randell, who is Head of Careers, are available to help students identify and apply for placements. Please contact Bev by email if you have any queries Contact us.
