Marshfields School

A Positive Choice

Work Experience

Lead: Mrs Cheryl Thomson


Work experience is a very important part of the Marshfields curriculum. It provides Marshfields students the opportunity to gain a practical insight into the world of work. It also presents them with a first hand opportunity to develop the skills they will need to work successfully with adults and as a member of a team. Work Experience compliments and provides relevant practical examples for students’ school based studies.

Period and Timing of Work Experience

It is our intention that every Post 16 Student will take part in work experience for one day per week throughout the academic year. Year 11 students will have the opportunity to do a 2 week block placement in the final term of the academic year.
