Work Experience

During the week commencing 8 July 2019, all of our Year 12 students will be undertaking a one week work experience placement. It is the students’ responsibility to research and secure their work placements, which should ideally be in a sector they aspire to work within.

Students are offered a great deal of support in school to help them secure a placement. This is a fantastic opportunity for them to gain valuable experience and transferable skills which will enhance their future prospects.

Please support your son/daughter with their work experience application. All students have been provided with a precedent letter which they can tailor to their own individual applications. Please  click here for a copy of the letter and click here for the work experience form.

To secure the best possible placement it is imperative that all students adhere to the following deadlines:

Thursday 20 December 2018: Application letters must have been sent by this date. Friday 11 January 2019: Students must have followed up all of their applications by now. If a placement has been arranged, return all signed paperwork to the Careers Team in LRC by no later than Friday 15 February 2019. If a placement has not been arranged by 11 January, students must make an appointment with the Careers Team to discuss next steps.
