Work Experience 2018


Further to the Work Experience Assembly held in June where the ‘Self-Found / Flexible Placement Forms’ were handed out, please could I ask now that all completed forms be handed in to the school office or to myself in Physics Room 1.


As a reminder to all pupils, the deadline for processing these forms in conjunction with the criteria set by Gateway Work Placement Services is the week beginning Monday 17 September.


The Work Experience itself will take place the week beginning Monday 29 October. All pupils self-planning and preparation for the Work Experience will be supported in Social Education lessons with the opportunity to complete the National 4 - SQA Steps to Work award.


However, please could I reiterate at this time the importance of an early completion in the next week of the ‘Self Found’ forms, as this will enormously help the smooth processing of the Work Experience 2018, giving time for them to be internally processed and checked.


If anyone has any further questions or would like another copy of the placement form, it can be easily accessed from the school website or myself in Physics 1.


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