Year 10 Work Experience

Year 10 students will undertake 1 week of work experience on week commencing Monday 24th June 2024. 

Work experience is a great opportunity for students to learn about the world of work, develop transferable skills and it provides students with an insight into some of the career paths that may be available to them in the future. Students are strongly encouraged to source their own placements as soon as possible so that it meets their aspirations.  

This year we have partnered with Changing Education who will be processing work experience placements through their portal / app.  Changing Education will also be sourcing some work experience opportunities and these will be posted on the Changing Education portal / app as and when they arise.  Details of how students can access the Changing Education Portal / App will be launched to students in December 2023.

Cressex Community School believes that work experience is an essential part of a student’s holistic development and has continued to offer work experience, despite changes to Government policy and focus.
