Work Experience


Work experience is an invaluable opportunity for our students to gain an insight into and experience the world of work. We believe that learning takes place both in the classroom/workshop as well as outside experiences with employers

Work experience is an invaluable opportunity for our students to gain an insight into and experience the world of work. We believe that learning takes place both in the classroom/workshop as well as outside experiences with employers.

All students across every subject area are supported to undertake work experience placements; the placement will be focused on developing the relevant practical and technical skills required for a profession or trade that you will be studying.

We work with a large amount of employers across various sectors within the Doncaster area, all of which offer exciting opportunities to work on real projects.

The use of placements in business and industry help develop skills and attitudes needed for employment.

Visiting a real construction site gives the students a valuable insight into the Building Industry and enhances their understanding of how taught theoretical principles are applied in practice. This kind of work experience builds confidence, allows for independence and helps to grow these young people.
