Vocational Learning

Year 11 work experience is underway. After many months of planning all the students have placements and have been prepared for their work experience placement. 

We have a wide range of placements this year, some new employers and some that we have used for many years. The employers and hob types are wide ranging, for example we have students tasting retail employment in B and M, child care in school and private nurseries and engineering at Stagecoach to name just a few.

Students complete a work experience diary during their work experience and are visited by BVHS staff. 

Transport to and from placements is provided on the whole by the local authority but we are very proud to report that a number of students have travelled independently to their placements. Some students received support in the form of travel training from school and Fusion.

All students have the opportunity to achieve an Open Awards qualification called : Preparation for work experience, if they complete the necessary coursework and complete their work experience diaries.

Reports so far from parents, carers and employers have been extremely positive.

Preparation is the key!

Year 11 students spoke to year 10 about work experience. Year 10 asked some excellent questions and I hope they know feel more confident. Year 10's work experience will be November 2017.
