Work Experience

Year 10 Work Experience – Monday 25th to Friday 29th June 2018

In Year 10 Ilfracombe Academy students have the opportunity to spend a week in the workplace.

Doing a work experience placement is a great way to find out whether a certain type of career is for you. It gives you the opportunity to learn new skills, build contacts and experience what it’s like working in a real 9-5 job.

Students choose where they would like to go and are encouraged to find their own placements by contacting employers directly (apart from Brend Hotels, NHS Trust (North Devon District Hospital), Ilfracombe Infant School & Charter Vets – where students will be told how to apply).

Placements must have both employer and public liability insurance and be health and safety checked and approved by our local Education Business Partnership (who will visit the placement to complete the health & safety check).

If you are a local employer and would like to discuss offering work experience to our students please contact Mrs Julie Mugleston, Head of Work Related Learning and Enterprise –
