Our students' learning goes beyond the curriculum with a range of support and experiences designed to prepare them for university and beyond.
S5 students spend two weeks in a workplace to gain insight into the day-to-day experiences of a particular career or field of work. The programme is run after the June written examinations. Students are free to choose from almost any place of work, with the exception of the workplace of either of their parents.
An application process must be followed to arrange a Work Experience placement, which is a valuable experience for the future. Students are guided in CV writing and interview techniques during mentor lessons. During the two-week placement, students must follow the working hours of their workplace and do not attend school.
