Year 10 Work Experience

Between 10th and 20th July 2017, all Yr10 students will complete their work experience placements. Work experience enables all students to gain an insight into working life by spending a short period of time in an outside working environment. If you are in Yr10 and have not yet obtained a workexperience placement there are two options available to you.

Option 1

The first option is to find a work experience placement of your own. You will need a self-canvass form which can be downloaded from this page. This form needs to be completed by the employer and your parent/ carer and returned to Student Services no later than Friday 27th January 2017.

Option 2

The second option is to apply to complete a week’s work experience at QPD Military (Wenlock Barracks- near the KC Stadium).  In order to apply you will need to write a letter of application addressed to Mrs Allinson at the academy explaining why you would like this placement. The deadline for your application letters is Friday 27th January 2017 and should be handed in at Student Services.

Option 3 

Apply for a placement via the small available placements the academy have obtained. Which will be available to do so in January within an assembly. Please note: due to the increasing year groups, we encourage students with the support and guidance of the academy to find their own placement, to ensure each student experiences the area they have specified interest in.

For further guidance and support please contact Miss K. Adamson at the academy- 01482 781912.
