Year 10 Work Experience Week 2020

Overview of the Week for Year 10 Students

The focus of Enrichment Week for Year 10 students is helping them to develop an insight into their future careers.  We therefore encourage our Year 10 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. 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.

The Work Experience Booklet explains everything you need to know with regards to Work Experience and opportunities during Enrichment Week. The booklet describes the process of Work Experience in 4 easy steps:

Step 1: Selecting a Package

Step 2: Getting Help

Step 3: How to Sign Up and Payment Details

Step 4: Carrying Out the Work Placement

A Work Experience placement is not confirmed until the College has received a completed copy of the Work Experience Forms, and CSW advisors have approved the placement. Students are responsible for handing in the completed Work Experience Forms, these include:

  1. Year 10 Return Slip
  2. Work Experience Agreement Form
  3. Health Declaration Form
