Year 10 Work Experience Programme - March 2020
The 2-6th March 2020 saw the whole of the Year 10 cohort actively engaged in our hugely successful Work Experience Programme.
With a host of over 180 employers from Cumbria to Oxford, North Wales to Wigan, 222 students were warmly welcomed for a week long programme of work in an extremely wide range of sectors and industries. In short, they could not have made us prouder!
In the many tours, visits and discussions with the employers throughout the week, the response to the productivity, diligence and reliability of our students was overwhelming.
Students were encouraged to explore a variety of working environments and to use these to deepen their awareness and understanding of the many career paths and opportunities available to them. For many, invaluable employability links were forged and in some cases, new and exciting part-time employment opportunities were offered due to their commitment to the tasks undertaken by the students and their much-valued work.
The amount of praise and personal commendations are too numerate to record here but suffice to say, that we will be sharing the success, their experiences and the efforts of all of our amazing Year 10 students in a celebratory assembly on their return.
We are indebted to the many employers for their continued support, without which, the Work Experience Programme would simply not be able to take place.
As ever, we are so very proud to have exceptional students here at UVHS who are always incredible ambassadors of our school and the community we serve.
