All students in Year 10 undertake a two-week work experience placement during their Summer term. Work Experience is intended to enable students to gain experience of the world of work. Students are encouraged to find their own placements but are supported by the Work Experience Coordinator. Blackfen works in conjunction with Bromley Education Business Partnership to ensure that all placements have appropriate insurance and health and safety arrangements.
Aims of Work Experience
- To enable students to appreciate the demands, priorities, disciplines and relationships found in the world of employment.
- For students to develop self-confidence and self-discipline while working with adults.
- To recognise and record the use of Key Skills in the workplace.
