The Department for Education recommends that all students undertake high quality and relevant work experience as part of their Post 16 studies. The advantages of work experience to students are many and varied – from increased confidence, to a better understanding of job opportunities available to them. In addition to this, the experience they gain can help with future job or apprenticeship applications and UCAS applications to Higher Education.
With this in mind, we have allocated the 15th – 19th July 2024 for our current Year 12 students to undertake their own relevant work experience. Placements must only be within the North East region in order to adequately assess the safety of the placements as well as carry out visits during work experience week itself.
This year we will continue to use ‘Unifrog’ to manage work experience process which will make the whole experience more streamlined and much easier for students to organise. Students should click on the link below to log into their unifrog account.
Any queries regarding work experience should be directed to Mr Nesbitt or Miss Earl.
