Welcome to the Lord Lawson Work Experience site.
Work experience can be a great help if you’re wondering what sort of career you might want in the future.
A work placement is your opportunity to spend a period of time outside the classroom, learning about a particular job or area of work.
During your placement, you'll be able to find out what skills employers look for when they're hiring someone to fill a job vacancy.
You will also get the chance to develop your self-confidence and communication skills. This will help you to work better with other people in further or higher education, as well as in your future career.
At Lord Lawson we offer all students in year 10 a 5-day placement. This happens during the last week of the academic year. In 2012 this will be:
Monday 16th – Friday 20th July
To guide you through the work experience process, we’ve put together, with the assistance of Connexions, an online information pack. Just click on the buttons to find:
For those of you setting up your own placement, there is also a link to download a blank Personal Placement Form for your employer to complete. Read more about this in “Placement guidelines”.
If there are any questions the information doesn’t answer, please contact school on 0191 4334026 or email Mrs Carruthers directly on: firstname.lastname@example.org
We want this experience to be a valuable week for our students and are more than happy to talk about any questions or issues you might have that enable you to support your child both prior and during the 5 day placement.
