Work Experience

All Pupils at Dove House School all have the opportunity to undertake a work experience placement in an appropriate employment setting.

Pupils are matched to placements by interest and skills and are treated as a member of the team at their designated 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 placement lasting one week.  This experience helps to build confidence in learners, raise awareness of the abilities of our pupils and supports the development of employability skills, ready for the world of work.

Pupils on the Vocational pathway are timetabled to go out to work for an afternoon each week and therefore do not attend a block placement.
