Work Experience is an important part of Education for Employability which allows students to learn about the world of work in a “real life” working situation.
It is intended to give a student an experience of working life and the Key Skills needed in the workplace rather than a chance to try out an occupation they may want to follow. Within the limits of what is available, and the demands for very popular areas of work, the choice is made to benefit a student’s education, rather than for job sampling or recruitment purposes. Normally, companies where a student already has experience through a parent or a part-time job are not used.
This makes sure that they are having a real extension of their experience. The preparation programme for students will ask them to look at equal opportunities and stereotyping prior to making choices. All students, from those taking the fewest examinations to those who will take degrees, need real knowledge of the world of work.
