Year 10 Work Experience  

Key Points

All year 10 students must attend work experience
Ms Johnson-Garcia is the Work Experience Coordinator, all questions should be directed to her
Work Experience is arranged by the school and Wandsworth BEST
Students will be given the opportunity to take on a Wandsworth BEST placement or to arrange their own placement


Students can arrange their own placement - often these are the most successful placements
Own placements must be approved by Wandsworth BEST, an own placement form must be filled in completely and returned.
All employers must hold 'Employer's Liability Insurance'. Without this, the placement cannot go ahead
Placements are also offered by Wandsworth BEST - students will be assisted at school as to how to apply for and access the jobs online

During Work Experience

Work Experience is compulsory
Students must attend, on time, every day for two weeks 
Working hours will most likely differ from school hours
Teacher will visit students at their placements to see how they are getting on
Non-attendance/misbehaviour will result in students attending school during those two weeks and students will be unable to attend the Year 11 Prom
Students should not come to school on the last day of term
