click on ‘search for placements’

Use the search details box to either look for a category or an employer name or a type of opportunity.

When you get the search results, click on the third column (opportunity title) of the employer you are looking for and this will take you to a page with more details. Here you will find details of what will be expected of you as well as contact details of the person you need to address your letter to. Make sure the company offer work experience to your year group and that they do a full week block at the time of year you are going.

Make sure the times you are expected to be at work are possible for you to get to and from.

Make a note of the dress code. Check under ‘Opportunity Information’ that the employer is ‘active’. At the bottom of the page, make sure that the employer has been ‘approved’ in the H&S summary box and that the dates cover when you will be on work experience.

See Mr Moore or Mrs Modlin if you have any issues.
