****work experience update – due to the exceptional circumstances surrounding the Covid-19 outbreak all work experience placements for all year 10 students in the summer of 2020 are cancelled. We regret that students will miss out on this opportunity but the safety of students must come first. Even if students have returned to school by then it will not be practical to carry out the necessary health and safety checks for students by that time. It is our hope and intention to carry out a full program of work experience for students who will be in year 10 during the summer of 2021. This will be confirmed when school operations are able to return to normal and in keeping with health and safety advice from the Department of Education and Public Health England.****
Work Experience provides a crucial opportunity for the development of vital employability skills. It can take place at any point, but for most it’s something which happens during secondary school education years. For many that week or two will be the first taste of working life.
Work experience provides many benefits, giving young people skills and experience that will allow them to stand out to potential employers as well as helping them choose the right sector to work in. Some will go into Work Experience with a clear career ambition, some will want to sample something they like the look of and for others the experience will be to simply experience work. For all it is valuable experience; developing employability skills is essential alongside traditional academic qualifications to help prepare for life after school, college and university.
At LeAF Studio all students will complete a work experience placement during the summer term in year 10. We have partnered with CSW Enterprise to ensure that all students obtain the best placements possible and have a safe, enjoyable and productive two week placement.
