Enrichment Opportunities: Work Experience

Work Experience Week Summer Term

Work experience week takes place at the end of the summer term for students in Year 12. The students are expected to organise placements themselves, which should, ideally, be relevant to the career or HE course they are contemplating or, at least, an opportunity for them to develop transferable skills. Work experience should be arranged as early as possible, as some companies allocate places up to a year in advance. 

Most universities expect that students will have done at least one work experience placement during their sixth form programme. Some vocational degree courses, such as Primary Education, demand two weeks’ relevant experience as an absolute minimum. Students will need to discuss this with the sixth form team. Some students will have to consider completing additional placements during holiday periods.
