WORK EXPERIENCE WEEK – Monday 9th to Friday 13th July 2018

WORK EXPERIENCE - Why do we offer it?

At Liskeard School we undertake one week of work experience in the summer of year 10 and again in year 12. This is a valuable exercise in terms of the reality of the progression from full time education into employment. Students have work experiencethe opportunity to participate in their chosen field of employment, this may be a career path they wish to follow, something they are interested in or simply the possibility of trying something new. It provides a valuable insight into the world of work, the structures involved and employability skills. It is an essential element to career planning for the individual, giving them the chance to try out an occupation in a real life situation.

Instruction and workshops are given covering Health and Safety in the Workplace, Child Protection, Employment Law and Signage prior to students going out. The student will be given a Logbook to complete and during the work experience week a member of the school staff will visit the student in placement to check that all is well. The Logbook also has an employer section which they complete, this can then be kept as a record of skills learnt and as a testimonial from the employer.

Over the years work experience has proved to be a stimulus for students to work hard to gain the appropriate skills and qualifications needed to realise their ambitions.

During the first few weeks of the autumn term, the Work Experience Co-ordinator will give a presentation to all year 10 students. The presentation will include where to look for a placement, how to contact the employer and completion of the relevant legal paperwork. Students will be given an information hand-out which includes a proforma to help with writing to an employer.

Help does not stop there - Mrs Carlin is available in her office (in the old block, main corridor) each day during break and lunch time to help all students find a suitable placement. Students may also talk to tutors, personal tutors and members of staff, who may be able to help with ideas. Each student will be provided with a Pin Number for the County Website; here they will have access to approximately 250,000 employers who have offered a student in Cornwall an opportunity to do their placement with them before. We will also have many tutor periods, assemblies and workshops dedicated to finding a placement.



As soon as possible! It is vital that you start planning your work experience placement early as the majority of schools in Cornwall and Devon have the same week planned.



For the majority of students, the choice of employer is entirely their own but you should try to choose an employment area that you are interested in. If you are taking a Childcare course in school you will need to find a placement that is related to this as part of your syllabus i.e. in a nursery or infant school.

As a rule, the more interesting the placement, the more you will get out of it. Try not to go with parents, as you can try this at any time, also try to avoid self-employed people as these will possibly need to have a CRB done, which can take time to clear. You are able to do a placement out of county but not out of the country as we will not be able to monitor health and safety. If you choose an option out of county, your parents will be responsible for all transportation and accommodation arrangements and costs. If your chosen employer is not already on the county website, this does not mean that you are unable to do your placement with them. Complete the Approval and Consent form and pass it to Mrs Carlin for processing, so long as they meet the health and safety criteria, you will be able to do your placement with them.



All businesses and employers will receive a visit from County staff before the placement is approved. The premises and health and safety schemes will be checked and insurances sighted (Employer and Public Liability). Child Protection areas are covered in the Approval and Consent form.  If an employer does not have the necessary insurances or meet CP criteria, the placement cannot proceed. This includes placements with parents and family. During the week of work experience, a member of the school team will visit the student in situ to ensure all is well.



Once an employer has either verbally or approved your placement in writing, you need to:

  1. Collect an Approval and Consent form (Yellow form) from Mrs Carlin.
  2. Student and parent need to complete page 1 and read the ‘Information for Parents and Carers’ pack.
  3. Arrange to take the paperwork to the employer, including the ‘Information for Employers’ handbook. They will then complete their sections and sign page 4; they will also include a risk assessment applicable to the placement. This will then be returned to the student or collected.
  4. The student and parent read what the employer has written, including the risk assessment and then sign page 4.
  5. The form should now be returned to Mrs Carlin for processing.
  6. Health and safety procedures are completed by county and Mrs Carlin is informed of the outcome.
  7. Tutors are informed once a placement has been cleared to proceed, which is passed on to students

On the odd occasion a placement may be withdrawn or not approved by County due to health and safety. Should this happen, Mrs Carlin will inform the student direct and work with them to secure another.



The Work Experience Co-ordinator, Mrs Carlin, ensures that no one pupil is treated any less favourably than any other pupil. Steps are taken to provide placements where a student will not be disadvantaged and can gain a real experience, whilst taking into account their special requirements and needs.



There are monitoring procedures for equal opportunities throughout the process and this is highlighted in the initial presentation to students.



Sept/Oct - Presentation to students regarding their work experience

Nov - Letter out to parents

End Feb - Deadline date for completed Approval and Consent forms to be handed in to Mrs Carlin

Mar to Jun - Follow-up all students without a placement, including after school sessions

May/Jun - Health and Safety instruction

July - Work experience, including a visit from a member of the school staff




Notice: The next payment of £65 for the business trip to London is due by the end of Spring term. Tickets for transport and activities will be booked after Easter, so it is important this payment is made so the school have a clear idea about who is going.
