YEAR 10 WORK EXPERIENCE 2020-2021
We have taken the decision to suspend the Work Experience programme for 2020-21 given the current Coronavirus pandemic to keep everyone safe.
We will instead be putting together an alternative programme for year 10 students, that will include sessions linked to employability and work related learning.

Year 10 would normally take part in a College taster event in the summer term. As this is not able to go ahead for 2020, Year 10 are advised to look carefully at what Post 16 options will be available to them for September 2021.
Use XELLO initially to explore different options before going to the individual websites of each of the Post 16 providers of interest.
Look at different subjects/courses of interest ( those you may be currently studying as well as new ones)
Look at the qualification available and GCSE/BTEC grade requirements to access these courses in the future.
