Our school Work Placement Programme has been developed over many years; we have an extensive Data Base of placements and have fostered excellent relationships with hundreds of businesses both locally and out of Cornwall. We are very fortunate to have many local businesses that support our students every year. Our placements include retail outlets, hairdressers and beauticians, local school and nurseries, activity centres, leisure facilities as well as tourist organisations.
The aim of the Work Placement Programme is to:
To give students a broader view of the world of work and of associated disciplines, so that they will be better prepared to face the transition to an adult work environment
To provide preparation for life skills and support in identifying career pathways
To foster and reinforce links between students and the local community, the school and the employers
All our placements are checked for Health and Safety, Risk Assessment and Insurance before students are permitted to embark on any period of work experience.
