Work Experience Year 10
The focus of Enrichment Week for Year 10 students is helping them to develop an insight into their future careers and learning more about professional working environments. We therefore encourage our students to identify, secure and complete a Work Experience placement.
Work Experience provides Ivybridge Community College students with an insight into the working world, teaches them more about what to expect of life after College, and provides a valuable addition to their CV. For some, it will also provide an exciting opportunity to gain an insight into a specific career in which they are interested. A work placement is an opportunity to spend a period of time outside the classroom, learning about a particular job or area of work. It is also a valuable opportunity for students to understand the ways in which their classroom education is adaptable and utilised in the workplace.
Students will also get the chance to develop and show evidence of vital skills such as self-confidence, communication, independence and a variety of other skills, depending on what kind of placement they do.
