During the summer term all of our Year 10 students spend two weeks on work experience placements.
The Department for Education (DfE) definition of work experience is "A placement on employer’s premises in which a student carries out a particular task or duty, or range of tasks or duties, more or less as would an employee, but with an emphasis on the learning aspects of the experience"
As a school we are keen to seek opportunities to develop our students' employability, leadership skills and resilience. The Takeover Challenge is a brilliant opportunity for students to organise a day of work experience, This could be in a career sector that interests them or in a workplace that they would like to experience - perhaps with a family member. It is a great way to improve employability, learn new skills and build a career network, whilst having a really fun and memorable day.
Our Takeover aims are:
- developing students' employability and leadership skills
- creating enthusiasm for work and specific careers
- building relationships between our school, employers and students
We are interested to learn more about any meaningful and worthwhile opportunities you may have to involve our students. Please complete the Takeover Challenge Opportunity form below to tell us about any opportunities you may have.
