Year 10 Work experience - start organising now!
Year 10 work experience is Monday 19th to Friday 23rd August 2019. Students are already organising their placements. Some companies only take one student a year, so it is very important to start this process early.
The Arrangements forms can be downloaded here.
Caro Baring is our Work experience co-ordinator and can help students who are having difficulty finding a placement.
Work experience gives you the opportunity to experience a work place where you may want to work in the future, or undertake further training to qualify for this work.
When can I start working?
You must be aged 15 years to start paid work (not 14 years and 9 months). There are some exceptions including being employed by a family businesses, or working in the television industry. You can start looking for work before you turn 15 and can also apply for a Tax file number as well.
