Our Year 10 Work Experience Week is a great opportunity for students to practice employment skills they will need in their future working lives and to investigate careers they may be interested in. Students participate in real work activities and keep a log of the tasks they do and the skills they use. This year work experience runs from 1st July – 5th July 2019.
Our annual Careers Fair is a great place for all students to find out about future options and career paths that may be available to them. With representation from local colleges and universities, apprenticeship providers, the public sector and local businesses there is usually something for everyone.

Speak to as many people as you can. Your teachers, your parents/carers, family friends and your careers department are all great resources to help you.
Enhance your Skills and Experiences
Getting great grades is important, but you also need to think about your skills and experiences. Do you participate in clubs or extra curricular activities? Have you represented school? Have you considered voluntary work or a part time job? Do you take on additional responsibilities? What skills and experiences do you have and how can you demonstrate them? Skills and experiences gained now will add to the quality of your CV and future course and job applications.
Make the Most of Careers Information and Opportunities
Throughout your time at school you will have plenty of opportunity to get involved in careers related activities. There are Citizenship focus days on skills and CV writing, work shadowing and work experience weeks, assemblies about options, colleges and apprenticeships and an annual Careers Fair.

Here, you can explore different types of employment sectors and look at jobs in detail. You will be able to find out about job roles, the work involved and the qualifications, skills and experiences needed for that job.
