To view the work experience providers who have been supporting our students this year please click here.
We aim to give all students aged 14-19 the opportunity to gain work experience within the community.
The Work Experience Co-ordinator organises placements in partnership with each student. All placements are then approved by The Lincolnshire and Rutland Education Business Partnership.
Once parental consent letters have been received, the work placement will commence. The Work Experience Programme teaches the students
Students who want to undertake work experience within GANF are not just given the opportunities, they have to apply for the positions themselves. This gives them experience of completing an application form and undertaking an interview.
Different placements are advertised weekly in the careers library in school, with a wide variety of options available.
Once a student starts their work experience placement, each week they attend they then complete a work experience log. The log helps to highlight skills that have been learned as well as progress that has been made.
Each placement company also completes a log of a student’s progress. This is then filed for future job applications.
GANF Work Experience & Careers Advisor is Jo Corrall. She can be contacted on 01476 564957 or email on firstname.lastname@example.org
Work Place Visits
Alongside the work experience placements we also organise work place visits.
These are one off visits for either students who are not yet ready to participate in the work experience programme, or to visit employers who wish to support our programme, but are unable to offer ongoing work placements.
These visits have been hugely successful, at giving students an insight into the day to day workings of various companies.
So far this year we have visited RSPCA at Radcliffe on Trent, Macdonalds at Grantham and the Job Centre at Grantham. We have lots of other exciting visits lined up for the rest of this academic year.
Students have also attended a construction day organised by the EBP (Education Business Partnership) at The Lincolnshire Showground, where they participated in various workshops:
- Joinery with Lincoln College
- K'Nex Workshop
- A Plant Surveying
- Gelder Group Scaffold & PPE
This was a really enjoyable and fun day out and we hope to attend more of these Career days in the coming year. Please click here to see photo's from the day.
