Work Experience (WEX)
Work Experience is an opportunity for all year 10 students to participate in industry placements for a week placement in semester 1. 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 as career or purely for interest's sake.
Students are required to contact employers from the Inplace website which can be found through the student backpack portal. 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. Student can see Ms Kirkpatrick about a possible work experience placement or email Alison.firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
