Work Experience

All Year 10 students have the opportunity to take part in Work Experience for a week in the spring term. The students are briefed before they go and have a detailed Work Experience Handbook to complete during their placement.

All placements that students arrange are verified by South Gloucestershire Council's Schools Health and Safety Unit.

Students in Years 12 and 13 are also given the opportunity to complete Work Experience in their chosen career area.

For more information on the place of Work Experience, please go to the Careers, Information and Guidance page.

For specific queries relating to a Work Experience, please contact Mrs Melanie Price, Work-Related Learning Manager, at melanie.price@thecastleschool.org.uk
