Information Evening for Year 10 Work Experience 24th November

I am writing to invite you to attend our Information Evening about Work Experience at 6pm on Tuesday, 24th November 2015 in the canteen. The evening has been arranged to offer you as much help and guidance as possible with regards to the Year 10 Work Experience week which is going to take place w/c 20 June 2016.

Although June seems a long time off, the students need to have their placements arranged by the end of January 2015 to give Norfolk County Council enough time to health and safety check and approve every single one of those placements.

On the evening you will have the opportunity to hear from some employers who offer work experience to our students. There will also be some Year 11 students present who will talk about their time at their chosen placements. For those Year 10 pupils who are unsure where to go for their work experience there is a list of potential placements available and we can also give you the contact details of the employers.

We as a school value the Work Experience week immensely as it gives our students a fantastic opportunity to find out about the world of work. Many of our students have blossomed during this week and matured. For a lot of our students it has helped them make decisions about future careers and some of them have even been able to secure Saturday jobs or even apprenticeships during their placements.

We hope that you will be able to join us on the 24th of November, tea and coffee will be available from 5.45pm in the canteen and we anticipate the evening to end by 7pm at the very latest.

Yours sincerely

Robert Hodges

Subject Leader for Business, Enterprise, Careers and Work-Related Learning
