Students at Leeds West Academy will participate in a work experience programme during Year 10. Planning for this starts in September and usually takes place the second week in March.
The dates for this academic year are: 15th - 19th March 2021
Students are encouraged to source their own placements, which helps them gain the skills they will need when it comes to finding a job in the future. Our Sponsor Leeds City College, source the rest of the work placements in a variety of sectors including catering, childcare and retail. All placements are subject to having employer liability insurance.
Wherever the work experience, all placements will be checked against health & safety requirements. Students are visited by a member of Leeds West Academy when on placement.
