At TPAT Sixth Form we offer two work experience weeks:
· Y12: students who have not opted to study the EPQ will undertake a one-week work experience placement in Y12 (term 4).
· Y13: all students will undertake a one-week work experience placement in Y13 (term 1).
Work experience placements can be completed in person or virtually. Students must arrange their placements independently and liaise with the school for support if needed.
These placements are aimed at ensuring all students experience valuable training and have the opportunity to evidence, evaluate and reflect upon the essential transferable skills that employers look for. By this we refer to the soft skills that are applicable to any career pathway such as team work, communication, using initiative and problem solving. Having such evidence will allow our students to complete high quality Post-18 applications.
