S4 Work Experience - September 2019
In September 2019 all S4 pupils are being offered the opportunity to source a one week work experience placement commencing 16th September 2019. This is an excellent chance for pupils to build the skills of learning, life and work and gain an insight into the workplace.
It is hoped that we can enlist the support of parents/carers to work alongside the pupils in seeking out a work placement that is relevant and meaningful to their needs. Initially we are asking the pupils, with the support of parents and family, to attempt to identify a suitable work placement.
Once a placement has been identified the prospective employer is required to complete the Self Found Form to satisfy health and safety legislation. It will be the responsibility of the pupil to ensure the return of this completed paperwork by Friday 10 May 2019. This is to allow the staff the appropriate period of time to overtake visits which ensure the safety of pupils in the workplace prior to them going out on placement. We have been informed by the Perth and Kinross Work Experience Team that no late applications will be accepted by them.
Therefore all completed Self Found Forms should be returned to Guidance by Friday 10 May 2019.
