Year 11 Work Experience

One of the many ways in which the school supports students in making choices is our very successful Work Experience Programme.  Work experience is an important and valuable part of the school curriculum, enabling students to understand key skills required in the workplace and giving practical insights into future career path options.

Work experience is for a period of one week, from Monday, 12 December to Friday, 16 December 2022.  We encourage students to organise their own work placements, as the skills involved offer a valuable educational experience.  It is necessary to contact a prospective employer explaining why they would like the placement and, if asked, supplying a copy of their Curriculum Vitae.

Once your child has written to the employer and secured a work placement with them, the next step is that both your child and yourself, as the parent, will need to complete paperwork. All of the relevant paperwork can be found by following this link to our Work Experience page: https://williamhoward.fireflycloud.net/work-experience where you will find the following forms for completion:

If you wish to discuss any aspect of the Work Experience Programme or placements, you can contact either myself thill@williamhoward.cumbria.sch.uk  or your child’s Student Manager by calling Tel: 016977 45700.

Yours sincerely
