WORK EXPERIENCE

‘Jobs are left vacant because students are not learning the right workplace skills’

Recent reports from employers and studies of employment trends have emphasised the growing importance of Work Experience for school leavers and for graduates. Employers prefer school leavers with Work Experience and there is a growing trend of firms employing students who have already worked for them during placements. Some firms are specifically offering jobs to school leavers who have opted to work instead of study or to combine the two.

Parrs Wood students have the opportunity to organise a Work Placement for a minimum of 5 days in July of Year 12. You will be supported in finding a Work Experience placement and our education business partners ,Education Business Solutions, will make sure that each placement has a Health and Safety Check and a current Employers Liability Certificate

Work Experience is a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate your enthusiasm and willingness to learn, whilst developing your team working, communication and problem solving skills.

And maybe get that all important ‘foot in the door’
