Work Experience 2013

June 6, 2013

Our year 10 students successfully took part in their Work Experience in June 2013. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the local businesses and schools who took one or more of our students for their work experience. It is impossible to name all of the placements who offered to take our students but particular thanks to Exxon Mobil and our local primary schools Orchard Junior, Orchard Infants, Wildground Infants/Juniors, Hythe Primary and Waterside Primary. Some students were successful in securing part –time jobs due to their hard work, effort and reliability whilst at their work placement. Others were encouraged to contact businesses in the near future, to attend Open Evenings for Trainee Apprenticeships.

These students will now hopefully use this experience and the skills they acquired to help them to take part in their ‘ mock interview ‘ on Tuesday November 19th from 6.05 – 8.00pm. It will also help them to prepare for their applications for college, full time jobs and apprenticeship placements.

Now, in year 11 students need to take that next big step into thinking and organising what they are going to do when they leave school. Students should be applying for their college courses and the interviews for these will take place in school with the local colleges in the Spring term.

If there are any students in the meantime who would like to have some help and guidance they then students can contact our Careers Adviser, Caroline Millman at any time to arrange an appointment.
