Coombes Boys School

Year 10 Work Experience 2018-19

As part of our 14-16 Careers Programme, all Year 10 students are expected to participate in a period of work experience.  The school has planned the work experience programme for one week, 11th – 15th February 2019. This is the week directly before spring half term and its purpose is to offer your son the opportunity of experiencing the world of work at first hand.

The programme is a joint effort between the school and you at home. We will carry out the administration, organisation and visit of the student on the placement; however, like most schools we rely on the students and their family to source appropriate placements.

It is important that your son goes on a placement that he is interested in.  However it is better not to restrict himself just to a job that he thinks he may want to do in the future, as he may find it is not possible to do this job at this time.
