4 Log onto: http://wforest.learnaboutwork.org/log-in-student.asp Students must memorise their pin number.
6 Things to do! Discuss work experience with friends and family Make six placement choices and submit them in order of preference and by given date.
7 Things to avoid doing!Students are asked not to make the same selections as their friends as most employers only take one student. Therefore students will be competing with other students for the jobs.Do not just look at the company name, read the job description as well.Students should not expect to do anything other than what is mentioned in the job description.
8 Own PlacementsStudents can source their own as they are more likely to get exactly what they want.Placements can be anywhere in the country.The employer must have Employer Liability Insurance (ELI).Pass a Health & Safety check carried out by an approved Health and Safety Officer.All forms must be fully completed and signed by the employer and yourselves as their parent, guardian or carer.
9 After allocation. Allocated placements will be highlighted in green. If your child has not been allocated a placement they will need to re-select.Ensure that the parental agreement form is returned by the given deadline.Your child must speak to their tutor if they have any difficulties or concerns regarding their placement.
10 InterviewOnce the placement has been confirmed students must contact the employer to arrange an interview.Employers will expect the student to arrange the interview and attend by themselves.This is an important part of the Work Experience Process, however if they have found their own placement, employers may not require a further interview or meeting prior to placement.In many cases – no interview, no work experience!!!
11 During the PlacementWhilst on placement students will be treated as an employee by the company.Employers must be contacted if they are ill, running late or attending an appointment.They will be expected to work business hours. This is anything up to a maximum of 40 hours per week!BEP Group will be advised if they do not attend placement and in turn will contact the school to find out where they are.
