Students in Years 10, 12 and 13 are supported to gain work experience placements to enhance their employability skills and personal development.
Work placements provide work related learning and are vital in ensuring students make an informed choice about their future education and career path.
Academic institutions (such as universities) and employers value work experience highly, and all students in Year 12 must complete 20 hours of work experience.
Students are encouraged to find their placements according to their interests and future career aspirations. Placements are also provided directly by employers who we have worked with in previous years.
We advise students to contact employers by phone or letter to request a placement. Students can find guidance on how to write a placement letter below.
