For many years, Brine Leas Students have undertaken Work Experience as part of the Year 10 Curriculum. Most students come back altered, with their self confidence strengthened, having actually seen the real world for five days. It can be an important stepping stone towards examination success and a realisation that they will soon be moving on to the next stage of their lives.
We cherish the links that we have made with the community through the Work Experience programme; we do endeavour to contact all employers and visit students at their place of work.
It is worth stressing that the experience need not be related to any final career, as any experience within a work place environment is extremely valuable.
I hope that the information provided by the school clearly sets out what the employee and the school expects, as well as what your child’s entitlement is. Do not hesitate to contact Miss Morrison for further details.
