Work-related learning can be defined as a planned activity that uses the context of work to develop knowledge, skills, and understanding around employment.
Work-related learning occurs through work simulations and mock interviews, work experience or enterprise activities, and through vocational contexts in subjects. Our aim is to enable young people to develop career awareness and employability skills. Furthermore, we provide the opportunity to ‘learn by doing and encourage positive attitudes to lifelong learning.
Since April 2018, our pupils have been gaining work experience in retail at the local FARA Charity shop and Sainsbury’s store, catering and hospitality at local cafés, and office skills at Action For Kids.
