Year 10 Work Experience
Year 10 Work Experience has been a huge success this year.
After two Year of COVID restrictions our Yr 10 students have been back out onto “real” work experience placements.
One of the most important benefits of work experience is its potential to provide opportunities for students to learn more about their own abilities. It helps them explore their strengths and weaknesses and identify the gaps in their skills. By helping students to explore the depths of their abilities, work experience can help students to draw a comparison between the skills they possess and those required by a specific job. It encourages practical application of the knowledge they have acquired at school. Irrespective of how much students have learnt at school, work experience imparts knowledge and skills that students might have never been exposed to while studying.
Work experience also endows students with several soft skills such as interpersonal skills, communication skills, team-work and time management.
