Work Experience

Work Experience for Year 10 students on Friday 7th July 2023.

We are delighted to be able to again as we did in 2022, offer our students the opportunity to take part in a self-sourced placement, experiencing a day in the working world.

Since the pandemic there 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 historic 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 historic format we used prior to the pandemic.. 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 7th 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 - Students will attend a work experience placement, which is sourced by the family and suggested ideas could be with parents/carers, family members, friends or business contacts.  All necessary paperwork needs to be completed to approve attendance at this placement. Approval and consent forms will need to be completed and returned to the school office by Friday 23rd June.

Pathway 2 - Students will have a virtual work experience, which will be conducted remotely at home on Friday 7th July. This will be provided by our business partners SpringPod.

Further information will be provided to students, parents & carers during Spring term 2023
