Work Experience

The Bewdley School’s Work Experience Programme takes place during the first week of the Autumn Term in Year 11. They will be given the  opportunity to:

• experience the world of work and prepare for the adult working environment

• understand the skills and attitudes needed in the adult world

• discover how manufacturing and service industries work, and recognise the importance of the economy in society

• consider the relationship between education and employment

• extend their personal and social skills and develop self-confidence

• develop, practise and demonstrate key skills in a work setting, such as working with others and communication

Learners return from their placements with increased self confidence, and a strong motivation to succeed as they begin Year 11.
