Work Experience

The main objectives of work experience for Year 12 students are:

  • To allow students to experience and understand how commerce and industry operate.
  • To experience the difference in the working and school environment. 
  • To help students to see the relevance of school subjects to the world of work.
  • To help students gain greater self-confidence and maturity.
  • To enable students to find placements that are related to the career/university course they are considering and also to their  subjects and, hopefully, increasing their motivation.
  • To allow them to prepare for their personal statement for their UCAS form for university applications/CV for the workplace.
  • To practice new skills. Soft skills, communication, team working etc.

Relevant work experience is increasingly viewed as an essential part of any good application for Higher Education and the world of work. For candidates equally good on paper applying for courses/jobs, it could well be the work experience placement that tips the balance in favour of one candidate over the other. This is the case more than ever nowadays given the greater competition for places in higher education and for the job market.

Students are encouraged to find their own placements, with support from their families, Form Tutors and the Sixth Form team. Key details of the process to finding placements is included in the letter.

All students should familiarise and follow the Work Experience Guidance which can be found in the link below; this includes:

  • Work Experience Policy and Work Related Learning policy Statement
  • Work Experience - the procedure students must follow in order to secure a placement

Work Experience Guidance and Procedures

How to find a work experience placement

  • Ask friends or family for support.
  • Ask teachers or Sixth Form team for contacts.
  • Apply to a work experience scheme online.
  • Send a speculative letter or email direct to a firm.
  • Join Linkedin and ask companies directly.
  • Get your CV and cover letter Work Experience ready (see below for further information).
