Year 12 Summer Work Experience Programme

The Careers Team are thrilled with the success of the Year 12 Work Experience Programme this year.  

Students worked hard at creating top class CV’s on Unifrog, our destination platform which helps them secure really meaningful work placements across a variety of industries spanning across the UK with some venturing as far as Wales!

The students' enthusiasm to succeed in the programme was exemplary and reflective of the amazing feedback we received from employers who want to continue to host QE students for work experience in the future and for some students, employers offering them apprenticeships after they finish at QE!

Student feedback found exploring careers through work experience really helped, bringing jobs on paper to life!

This programme reinforced to some students their desire to pursue career paths while for others the realisation that the career was not quite the fit! Either way minds have been opened!

Don't take our word for it, check out the student testimonials via this link!

Year 12 & 13 Students Voluntary Summer Placements Available

Home-Start understands support through a child’s earliest years makes the biggest impact.  Home-Start volunteers can provide emotional and practical support that can transform the lives of families

Recently Home Start  was awarded funding by Dorset County Council to help support children’ transition into reception in September.  This particular cohort of children  have missed out on nursery education due to the pandemic.  Home Start will be offering playgroup style sessions running up to and through the summer depending on the location. 

Following the success of former Year 13 volunteers, Home Start  is appealing for more Y12 & Y13 QE students  to help with groups, not just the School Readiness sessions, but for our family groups which are held in Kinson on Wednesday and Thursdays. This opportunity is offering short-term placements through the summer and potentially longer term placements next academic year through work experience enrichment options.

Ideal students Students will need to be comfortable with working in a fast paced environment with children under 5 and are studying Health and Social Care, Psychology and Sociology and are thinking of a career in Social Care, child development, nursery groups etc.
