Senior School Work Experience 2018


Work Experience this year will take place the week beginning Monday 29 October until Friday 2 November. In preparation for this, the ‘Self-Found / Flexible Placement Form’ has been handed out early to all new S4/S5/S6 students in the past week, so that preparation and planning time can take place over the Summer holiday period. As part of their preparation for Work Experience, students should use this time to contact their work placement business of choice through letter, email or a visit.


In the new term there will be a Work Experience assembly focussing on the progress made so far and how students will be supported in their self-planning and preparation for a successful Work Experience in relation to a National 4 Employability Award. However, at this stage it is important to highlight that all ‘Self-Found / Flexible Placement Forms’, should be returned and completed before the week beginning Monday 17 September, in order to give time for them to be internally processed and checked before being assessed by Gateway Work Placement Services. For more information please see your Guidance Teacher or contact Mr Gracey.


 Attached is a blank copy of the Self Found Placement form which requires completion.
