This year’s work experience dates for S4 will be 10 – 14 September. Our current S3 pupils should now be starting to look for possible placements. Lessons will take place in PSHE to prepare the pupils for work experience and there will be a presentation on this at the S3 DYW Day on 25th April.
If they wish to be proactive and start looking for their own placement they should collect a self found placement form from Mrs Strain in the Pastoral Support Base. This is necessary for insurance purposes.
