Year 10 Work Experience Dates 2021: Monday 12th July to Wednesday 21st July 2021
Parents Meeting: January 2021- Date and time to be confirmed
Own Find Deadline: Friday 26th February 2021
We would like to take this opportunity of introducing you to our Work Experience Scheme, which is designed to help students prepare more effectively for life at work after they have left school or college.
Bonus Pastor Catholic College is part of the Lewisham Work Experience Team (LWET), who provides some placements, but students are encouraged to find their own placements. We know that we can count on your support by ensuring that your child commences the process of planning and applying for work experience placements with prospective employers now, as the best placements usually get taken up by the end of December. Now, especially during the summer holidays would be the best time to start this.
Work Experience is intended to give students an insight into the world of work, its disciplines and relationships. It also helps to develop the self-awareness and confidence of the students. They will hopefully learn how a workplace operates, how organisation and authority are necessary out of school, how to work with other people and perhaps the public. We hope that such an experience will be stimulating in many different ways.
The students will undertake a preparation programme, and will also be asked to keep a diary during their placements. A member of staff will visit them during the placement.
We will inform you of a Work Experience Information Meeting that will be held, at a later date.
If you require any further details please do not hesitate to contact us at the college
