Sandwell Academy Year 12 students recently took part in a week of Work Experience placements. The placements took place at a wide variety of organisations covering a range of different sectors, including teaching, IT, manufacturing, engineering and leisure centres and many more. The aim of the week was to raise awareness of the world of work to students and for them to gain real “hands on” experience of the day-to-day roles involved.
Miss Orton – Director of Careers and Guidance said ”We are delighted with the success of this year’s Work Experience for our Year 12 students, they have really shone and many of them have received offers for additional work placements during the summer break. We would like to thank all of the employers who supported work experience placements, without whom our students would not have these invaluable experiences and insights into the world of work”
