We firmly believe that ‘work experience’ takes many different forms including work related learning, shadowing and volunteering. Therefore all work experience, enrichment and leadership opportunities that students take part in are logged centrally.
All Year 12 students take part in one week’s calendared Work Experience. These placements are safeguarded by DCC as we enter in to their Service Level Agreement.
In addition to this, any Sixth Form students who wish to organise their own Work Experience throughout the year will be supported with this, some students such as medics and primary teachers have to complete work experience as part of their post 18 entry requirements.
