Ormiston Sandwell Community Academy

Work Experience

Work Experience is considered by the Academy to be an extremely valuable part of students’education, and as such it is expected that all students in Year 10 willparticipate.

The Work Experience Scheme is very successful with our students being placed in varying environments such as shops, offices, schools, manufacturing industries and many others.

The Academy is able to find many placements on behalf of our students, but experience shows that students find the process of obtaining their own placement more beneficial particularly if they have a specific career in mind.  If you are able to find a placement for your child please do so.  However, we do ask that students do not arrange placements with close family members if possible.  All placements will be checked by the Local Authority to ensure that they are safe for our students and that they hold the relevant insurance.

Further information relating to your child's placement will be sent to you at a later date.
