Pupils at Dove House School all have the opportunity to undertake a work experience placement in an appropriate employment setting.
Children are matched to placements by interest and skills and are expected to contribute to the duties of their work place.
Depending on the pathway and readiness of each pupil they can expect to go out at the end of Year 10 or during Year 11 for a block of consecutive days. This experience helps to build confidence in learners and raise awareness and supports the development of employability skills.
Pupils on the Vocational pathway are timetabled to go out for an afternoon each week and therefore do not attend a block of placement.
