Work Related Learning

One of the ways in which young people are encouraged to find out about life in the work place is our well-established Work Experience programme. It forms an integral part of the curriculum for our Year 10 students and usually lasts for two weeks. In order to make the most of opportunities offered, students work through a schedule of planning, preparation, briefing and de-briefing in their Careers sessions.

Work Experience aims to help students to:

  • develop personal and social skills and qualities by working with new adult contacts;
  • understand some of the demands, responsibilities and routines of working life; apply some of the skills they have learned at the Academy;
  • compare career ideas with actual experiences.

Some students are asked to complete assignments for course work while on placement. All students use a diary to record feelings, experiences and skills gained or practised. This may be assessed as part of a GCSE or BTEC course.

For students that complete their Work Experience, a Certificate of Achievement is awarded, with the opportunity to gain a Distinction for recognition of outstanding achievement.
