Work Experience (Y10)

At NGHS we offer a week of work experience for our year 10 students, which takes place during Curriculum Enrichment Week (June). The students are fully supported through their careers education in PSHE lessons to select appropriate placements to contact, to create their application letter and CV if required, to learn interview skills and receive information on health and safety and other employment matters. Students are encouraged to independently conduct this process, so that it is a realistic exercise in careers learning. Most students will receive a visit from their tutor or another representative from school during the week and all students will be expected to complete a work experience journal.
