Work Experience

During the summer term all of our Year 12 students will spend one week on work experience placements. 

The Department for Education (DfE) definition of work experience is “A placement on employer’s premises in which a student carries out a particular task or duty, or range of tasks or duties, more or less as would an employee, but with an emphasis on the learning aspects of the experience” 
 
Work Experience brings tangible benefits for young people, employers, schools and society as a whole . Students will be able to experience the realities of day-to-day working life, ideally in an area of work in which they have some real interest.  
Students are strongly encouraged to arrange their own placements, as this allows them to target an area that they are really interested in. Work Experience placements are in demand with numerous secondary schools seeking placements, therefore it is never too early to start approaching potential companies/employers.
 
The dates for the 2018 Year 12 Work Experience are Monday 16th July – Friday 20th July inclusive
 
The below documents contain further information for students and parents. However, should you have any queries please contact Mr George, Head of Careers at workexperience@didcotgirls.oxon.sch.uk
