Work Related Learning and Enterprise
Work Related Learning Opportunities
Within Post 16 we provide a wide range of opportunities for students including internal and external work experiences. For example within school, students work in horticulture, construction and in the school office.
Off site opportunities can include working in a charity shop, on a farm, at the local dog kennels, in cafes or fast food outlets and within local primary schools. Whenever necessary our students benefit from 1:1 support or may access longer term regular placements if appropriate.

Students learn about enterprise in Post 16 by making and selling items such as pots of bulbs, home grown vegetables, calendars, wooden planters and jewellery. Students take turns to run the break time Tuck Shop and the popular weekly Coffee Shop
