Work Experience for Year 12 students 2021

All Year 12 students will complete one week of Work Experience from Monday 12th July to Friday 16th July 2021 as part of their entitlement to Work related learning.  Students are required to locate a suitable and rewarding placement in advance of these dates to ensure all the necessary checks and procedures are completed.   To encourage independence, students are responsible for finding their own placement with Sixth Form tutors on hand to support students with this task.  Students will have  a login to the Derbyshire County Council website (link below) where they can access a list of suitable placements.  Students are encouraged to write their own correspondence  (by letter or email) to the various Businesses of interest in order to secure their placements.
