Work Experience Placements
Pupils at Kingswode Hoe undertake two work experience placements, a week in Year 10 and a week in Year 11.
Over the years we have built positive links with a variety of employers and place pupils in an environment which is most appropriate to them and their individual needs.
We are always so proud and impressed with the work that the pupils carry out whilst on placement and they always return to us more independent, mature and aware of the expectations of the world of work beyond our doors.
Year 10 Work Experience 2017
Year 10 has now completed a very successful week's work experience. We have been extremely proud of all the pupils this year, particularly with the manner in which they have conducted themselves in the workplace. We have had fantastic feedback from many employers however received one specific letter about Angus.
Among other positive comments, the Restaurant Director from Sloppy Joe’s had this to say about him; “I was delighted to hear both my chefs and managers singing your praises during your work experience week. It is rare for someone as young as you to be as enthusiastic and hardworking. You have a good head on young shoulders that will stand you well in the future.” Well done Angus.
Many of the companies indicated that they would consider employing the pupils in the future which is fantastic news.
Year 11 Work Experience 2017
Year 11 has now successfully completed a week’s work placement and we have received very positive feedback from the employers. All pupils worked extremely hard and this has given them a very positive attitude to the world of work.
