Work Experience

Work Experience is always important, especially now in our current economic climate.  Therefore, gaining more work related experience is likely to give you an advantage in the labour market by the time you leave full-time education.

It is a placement with an employer for a period of one week, where you will learn about a particular job. While you are working there you will be able to find out about the types of skills employers look for when they are contracting someone for a vacant job.

This opportunity also gives you the chance to develop communication skills and self confidence.

Work Experience usually takes place in February for Year 10 pupils. You are encouraged to find your own placement, however there are also a large selection of workplaces offered by our work experience partner Enfield Skills for Work Service. You will be required to go to an interview with your work experience placement provider, which helps prepares you forfuture interviews.
