A snapshot of students on work experience in 2022. A huge thank you to all the companies that offer work experience to our students . Work experience allows students a chance to take part in actual work with the emphasis on ‘doing’ rather than ‘watching’. They gain first-hand experience of the differences between school and employment as part of their on-going education. The input from work placements is particularly crucial to our students, some of whom may rely on practical skills to a greater extent than those from mainstream education.
