Year 10 Students Experience Working Life!

Year 10 Students Experience Working Life!

Last week, over 200 Year 10 Holyrood students were sent out into the big wide world to sample a variety of career paths. Students attended their work experience placements, both locally and across the South of the Country; including Norwich and London. One resourceful student even used the opportunity to experience work as a volunteer in a school in Kenya!
Coupled with finding about the actual industries they were trying out, students on work experience are also encouraged to learn key life skills such as working with people of varying age ranges and independently travelling to work using public transport. As a result of the fantastic opportunities that they have been given by employers, they have returned to school enthusiastic and with a better idea of what the future holds.
Local businesses have been hugely supportive of our students wanting to try their hand at a range of experiences and Mr Chris Slinger, Head of Year 10 would like to express his thanks to all that were involved in providing our students with invaluable access to such rewarding work experience placements.
