Year 10 Work Experience

Here you can find details about our Work Experience Programme for 2021-22.

Year 10 work experience is due to take place between Monday 23rd May and Friday 27th May 2022 and there are two routes that students can take:

EITHER:

  1.  Self-placement (face-to-face) work experience – students identify a suitable placement with an employer and complete the required documentation (also on this page).  This can be a placement of between 2 and 5 days during the designated work experience week.

OR:

  1. Virtual work experience – we have collaborated with Speakers For Schools to identify three employers who have each created a high-quality, two-day virtual placement.  There are approximately 50 places for each, and we will allocate students to places based on a survey to discover their preferences.  These will take place in school, using our IT facilities.  

    The employers are:

NNL (National Nuclear Laboratories) – Science & Technology focus            
Adecco Group – Digital / Human Resources focus            
Fine Tooth Comb – Marketing focus
 
Additional opportunities for work experience are made available, often directly with an employer, and these will be directed towards students in both Years 10 and 11, based on the results of the annual futures survey and records of meetings with our Careers Adviser.  In recent times, students from PGHS have completed work experience with the NHS, British Aerospace and United Utilities.

If you are a parent with questions or you’re an employer and you would like to work with us to provide a work experience opportunity, please contact Mr Ramsdale, Senior Assistant Headteacher (Careers Leader): j.ramsdale@penworthamgirls.lancs.sch.uk
