The Meadows School works with a variety of organisations in order to give an immersive experience of different jobs and opportunities in life.
We have fantastic partnerships with The Birmingham Repertory Theatre, The Open Orchestra, WBA Foundation, Dudley Canal and River trust. Our partners work with students across the school throughout the academic year.
The Meadows Sixth form are working with the Black Country Partnership, which offer work experience placements across two sites. These jobs have a focus on independence and experiencing the world of work outside the school setting. They provide roles in catering, where students label, prepare and serve food to the residents, and in reception where they meet and greet visitors to the building.
We currently have three students offsite once a week completing their placement hours; this provides them with the opportunity to work with an employer to enhance and develop their role in the organisation.
Students not taking part in placement will have taster days with an employer, where they can experience a role in the workplace.
We really love working with local and national employers are and believe in providing employer encounter opportunities for students and would welcome your support in achieving this goal. You can support our young people in number of ways such as…
- Providing work experience placements, work shadowing and work visits
- Taking part in encounter events, such as career talks and Enterprise activities
