The aim is to help give them a better understanding of, and be better prepared for, life in the adult workplace. Students can request to meet with Mrs Lee who will discuss what type of work experience would be beneficial according to each student’s aspirations and choices. Students are encouraged to research what type of work experience would suit them and further guidance will be offered on how to contact employers for work placements.
