Year 12 Work Experience – 8th July to 12th July 2024

Dear Parents & Carers,

All students in Year 12 are going to be on work experience from Monday 8th July to Friday 12th July 2024. During this week there will be no classes and students will be at the workplace of their host employer.

Work experience gives students the chance to learn about what type of job they might enjoy, develop their CV and gain new skills. Students have been aware of the dates since before the Easter holidays and should already be contacting employers to source their own work experience placements.

We are using Unifrog ( to manage the administration of the work experience programme, which includes collecting information from the employer about their Risk Assessment and Health & Safety policy, as well as getting agreement from yourselves for the placement to go ahead.

Important information:

  • Students need to agree to the placement with the employer first and then add the placement to their Unifrog account. Students have already created a Unifrog account and they will find the Placements tool on their Unifrog homepage.
  • The Unifrog system will then email the employer, the parent and the school, to collect the necessary information and permissions. For this process to work, it is essential that students add the correct information to the system about the placement.
  • Unifrog have created a set of guides which you can find here: and
  • We recommend that you look at this document, as it includes advice on how to find a placement:

Please read the guides and speak to your student about their progress in searching for a placement. If you have any questions, please contact us on

Kind regards,

Mrs C Brennan
Post-16 Manager
