Can you help to host a work experience placement?

Can you help to host a work experience placement? 

Work experience week is fast approaching (24th-28th June), and we still have a large number of students without a placement. 

Work experience is a mandatory requirement for all students as part of their Careers education, serving to help build essential skills that our students need for their lives beyond Sutton Grammar alongside allowing them to develop as individuals. Students gain a huge amount from engaging in work experience and employers also openly state their wishes for students to have practical work experience, yet placements are often challenging to arrange. We are hugely reliant on the support and opportunities offered by the wonderful SGS community, especially for those students who do not have a clear network of support or for those students looking to gain experience in very specific industries related to computing, finance, medicine, law or engineering, for example.   

Would you be able to host a student at your workplace? Would you be able to give them a taster of what work is like in your industry? Would you be able to offer shadow days and insight of your workplace, in person or even as part of an online experience? If so, we would love to hear from you.  

Please email if you, or someone you know, is able to help. We will share opportunities with students via the Careers Bulletin/Careers Notice Board and will then ask students to make contact to start their work experience journey.
