Year 11 Work Experience

Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome to the Year 11 Work Experience section on our website.  This section will predominately be used by current Year 10 students who will be participating in Work Experience during November 2017.  Work Experience is productive and worthwhile for all students.  The first link below titled Work Experience Introduction Letter, outlines the timetable of events that take place leading up to when students go out into the world of employment.  This new section provides you with access to template documents that are required before a student can be accepted for Work Experience.   Please also take time to read the Generic Information for Employers as this document provides key information for parents.   I will keep you updated regularly between now and October as your support in finding the correct employer is paramount.

The next communication via email to look out for regarding Work Experience will be sent when Oxfordshire County Council provide us with links to their database.  I am hopeful this will be sometime in April.  The database provides job descriptions and details of employers who have been checked and approved by the County for Work Experience.  At this point you will be able to view the details with your son/daughter and participate in the selection process of who they wish to work with in November.  If a student has an employer in mind who they would like to work with, they will need to print off the Student Own Placement form and complete it as soon as possible.  Please then take this form to me in Resources.   These placements may need to be visited by the County for approval.

Thank you

Mrs King

Work Experience Co-ordinator
