Work Experience

Work experience is an integral part of Year 10 and provides an opportunity for young people to gain an insight into the ‘world of work’ and to help prepare them for the responsibilities and opportunities of adult life. This opportunity has been incorporated into wonderful week.

Placements are defined as experience in which students carry out a range of tasks and duties more or less as would regular employees but with emphasis on the learning aspect of the experience. It is not intended to be training for a student’s chosen career.

Students will work normal business hours and could be asked by the employer to visit the placement before starting work.

Students are invited to find their own quality placement and can access an online help guide to assist with the process via the school website. All placements are required to complete a work experience placement form and all placements are checked for their suitability by EBP(NW) Ltd. Please note that placements need to be within the Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre areas.
