Here at Trinity we are committed to delivering high quality careers, information, advice and guidance (CIAG) for all of our students. Our aim is to equip our students with the knowledge and skills to enable them to make effective choices, understand their career and progression routes, and enable them to manage smooth transitions on to the next stage of learning or work. At key milestones throughout the students’ education we will provide support, advice and guidance to ensure realistic and informed decisions are made to help them to progress to Higher Education, Apprenticeships, and the world of work.
Every year group follows a careers education program which aims to raise aspirations and provide students with a better understanding of the pathways needed to take in order to achieve their goals. Throughout the year speakers and local employers from different organisations will come in to provide the students with inspiration, advice and inform them of professions and careers that they might never have considered.
Students take part in a wide range of careers activities such as ACE Days, Enterprise Events, Industry Days, STEM activities and University Visits for firsthand experience of further and higher education.
Year 10 Work Experience Week
Monday 2 July – Friday 6 July (inclusive)
At the beginning of July 2018 all of our Year 10 students will take part in a week long work experience. The work experience programme is a very valuable and enjoyable experience for our students and relies upon students, with parental assistance, finding their own placements.
Read our letter here for more information:
Every year our Year 10 students at Trinity School undertake a week of work experience. In previous years students have attended a wide range of placements including large national employers, local primary schools, vets practices, solicitors, accountants and army residential as well as independent businesses.
Students are encouraged to find their own placements according to their interests and future career aspirations. However, each year local businesses and organisations kindly guarantee us some placements and we also have a database of placements that our students have used in previous years available. We advise our students to contact prospective placements by phone or by letter. Many organisations do ask for a formal letter requesting a placement.
Please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Ewing at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like further information.
