What is Work Experience?

Work Experience in Transition Year is an opportunity to gain experience in a workplace of interest. Schools often give TY students two weeks or 1 day per week for 10 – 14 weeks for work experience. During this time students are expected to work in a business that they have organised a work experience placement with. Students will have to make a CV, work experience letter (Cover Letter) and sometimes give their employer an insurance letter from their school.
