Work experience

Through work experience, work shadowing and networking the students are able to assess their skills and make plans and decisions to help them obtain the required qualifications. These plans and decisions are career enhancing.

By using time management skills gained in school whilst preparing for exams, students are able to work towards their goal. They are able to designate time to study and time to socialise and learn very quickly that if they spend too much time socialising this will have a knock on effect with their results.

In 6th form many students juggle school, part-time employment, volunteering and being an active member of PHSG. This helps them understand the importance of a work life balance. Many students go on to find additional work experience placements in the holidays after completion of the GCSEs and during study periods when they are in 6th form as they realise the benefits of work experience placements/volunteering are invaluable.
