Year 7 Day to Work

The Year 7 Day to Work takes place each year when students accompany their parents or another trusted adult to their place of work for the day to observe and take part in working practices that they would not normally come into contact with at school.  It is a valuable personal development opportunity for our students and an excellent way to introduce the Work Related Learning Curriculum.  The Day to Work helps students to realise the value of the skills they are learning in the classroom  as well as appreciate how hard their parents work to support them! 

As part of the day the students are asked to complete a comprehensive handbook recording what they learn during the day and assess whether it will have an impact on their future educational and career aspirations. 

The fundamental aims of the day is to introduce the varied and wide skills base behind working life to students and to boost their confidence in practical and social skills.
