Work Experience in Year 10
Work Experience for Year 10 students on Friday 8th July 2022.
We are delighted after pandemic restrictions over the last two years to be able to offer our students the opportunity to be able to have a self-sourced placement, experiencing a day in the working world.
The last two years have seen significant changes to the traditional work model, with various sectors embracing work from home or hybrid models. In addition to this there have been significant changes to the mechanisms that allow school’s to support students in finding work experience placements. We have worked closely with career counterparts in West Sussex in an attempt to enable the previous model of delivery to continue, however this has not been possible and so the delivery of work experience for Year 10 students at Worthing High can no longer follow the previous format. As a school, we do value the insights gained from experiences into the world of work and as such, we have pursued our own alternative means to allow this to take place.
Friday 8th July will be our whole school, Focus Day 3. During this day, all Year 10 students will gain an experience of being in a working environment. This will follow one of two pathways:
Pathway 1 - Your child will attend a work experience placement, which is sourced by the family and all necessary paperwork is completed to approve attendance at this placement. All approval and consent forms must be completed and returned to the school office Friday 24 June.
Pathway 2 - Your child will have a virtual work experience, which will be conducted remotely at home on Friday 8 July.
Pathway 1 - Work Experience Placements
All externally arranged work experience placements must have an approval and consent form completed by families prior to the placement. The school will be unable to assist in making the arrangements for this placement. The approval and consent form must be completed and returned to the school office Friday 24 June. A copy of this is posted below.
Pathway 2 - Virtual Work Experience
Students who do not have an externally arranged work experience placement will be provided details on the virtual work experience and given all necessary details in order to fully participate in activities remotely during Focus Day 3 on Friday 8th July.
