Work Experience (WEX)
Work Experience is an opportunity for all year 10 students to participate in industry placements for a week placement. Students work through the process of identifying areas of interests and strengths during their Pastoral Care Class. They work with their teacher to identify possible industries in which they would like to explores either a career or purely for interest's sake. Students are required to contact employers from a database or from people that they know. Once a placement has been confirmed, students participate in an unpaid capacity as it is an opportunity for observation and learning.
Students that are 14 years of age can participate in a Work experience placement, this means that selected year 9 students may participate also.
