Every July we support Year 12 and Year 10 students to become part of the work force in Frome and surrounding areas to complete a week of work experience. With a greater emphasis on developing the employability skills of our students, this week provides an excellent opportunity to demonstrate the skills they have been acquiring whilst at the college and also gave students the chance to experience a full working week. Students often comment that the week gives them real insight in to the jobs or careers they are hoping to pursue. Many also feel the experience encourages them to think more strategically about their personal goals and the purpose behind succeeding in their studies. Lack of Work Experience is a key reason for employers rejecting job applications, so providing this opportunity is key to our students’ employability.

Each year this is only possible through the amazing support of local employers. On behalf of the school and the students we would like to thank all of the employers for their ongoing help supporting work experience weeks. Without their time, energy and support, work experience would not be possible.

Year 10: 27th - 31st January 2020
Year 12: 6th - 10th July 2020
