Work and Work-related learning

Pupils in Key stage 4 and 5 are offered a suitable work experience placement, where possible. We know that it is important to match individuals to the right workplace environment and offer the right support. Work experience may be offered in one of the following ways:

  • • in school
  • • work shadowing
  • • short term placement
  • • extended placement
  • • volunteering
The school will organise and manage any work placement, but if pupils would like to find their own placement, they are able to discuss this with Mr S. Weakley.

Work experience has a number of benefits for our pupils:

  • • increases confidence
  • • raises aspirations
  • • challenges their expectations
  • • broadens their horizons
  • • increases their opportunities
If you are an employer who is able to offer a work experience placement, please contact Mr S Weakley Telephone: 01424 730740 - Email: sweakley@stmarysbexhill.org
