Year 12 Work Experience
It may comprise work experience, internships, taster days, as well as academic projects, or specific programmes to enable SEN students to prepare for adult life. Students also have access to a Careers Fair which brings our students into contact with the world of work.
In order to maximise the outcomes of work experience, it is important to be clear about the learning outcomes for students.
1. Generic skills: experiencing work, including following working routines, working with adults, undertaking new tasks, developing confidence. You may also wish to use the placements to focus on, for example, improving motivation by highlighting the links between learning in school and working life, or on raising awareness of opportunities in work or learning.
2. Understanding and developing employability skills.
3. Learning outcomes related to subjects. These are particularly relevant for students on vocational courses and are more often a feature of placements for post-16 learners.
