All S4 students are given the opportunity to undertake a week’s work experience placement during the course of the year. This is a very valuable opportunity for students to experience the world of work and to begin thinking about possible career paths.
The Work Experience week this session, 2017-2018, runs from Monday 6th November to Friday 11th November. Students have been issued with a letter containing their unique username and password for the Workit Database. This allows them the opportunity to request placements through the Database (allocation will be subject to the number of requests and suitability of the placement for the student). Alternatively, if students are sourcing their own work placements, then a Self-found form MUST be completed by the employer and returned to their Guidance teacher by no later than Friday 15TH September.
Please note: The NHS will not source medical placements for S4 students. If a student wants a medical placement it must be arranged by them as a self-found placement. The form for this can be found HERE.
