All of our young people are encouraged to take part in work experience from Year 10 onwards. Work experience will be organised for our young people in any sector that they show an interest in. We have previously arranged work experience for our students with:
- Local primary schools
- Veterinary Clinics
- Age UK
- Dogs Trust
- Our in-house chef and maintenance team
All work experience providers are given a thorough Health and Safety check before young people attend and we ensure the correct insurances are in place. If relevant, we ensure an enhanced DBS check is also in place. Young people are accompanied on all placements initially, however we encourage our students to work independently as much as possible to give them a realistic experience of the world of work.
