All students at The Meadows are given opportunities each year to take part in work experience activities. This experience will develop their independence and confidence, give them an awareness of the ways in which employment is different to school lessons and help to prepare them for life after The Meadows.
We currently offer internal work experience for all students, either as part of careers week, through jobs on site, or to support their class group. In Key Stage 4 roles are developed as students engage with volunteering roles to support the Duke of Edinburgh awards. In Key Stage 5 employability and enterprise are a key learning area in ASDAN awards. Some students will also have an opportunity to work offsite with one of our employer partners, either as a one day taster session or a longer term placement.
