Work Experience

Work Experience is a key component of the FHES Careers Education Programme.

Year 10 students complete a five-day placement in the second half of the summer term which will coincide with Activities Week for the lower school (usually last week of June or first week of July but can vary from year to year). 

The aim of work experience is to give students an opportunity to develop key employability skills and we want to see every student spend a week on a work placement.

Secondary schools have a duty to provide students with an experience of the workplace whilst they are in school. 

The onus is on students to find their own placements as far as possible. School can provide support in instances where students are struggling.

See the presentations below for more detail.
