Sixth Form

Work Experience

University admissions tutors and employers are not just looking for students that are academically able but also looking for students who have shown a passion for their chosen career area.

Valid work experience can allow you to develop key skills required for the world of work, develop an understanding for a specific career as well as give you an insight into what it will be like to work in a full time job.

In the Sixth Form, we recognise the importance of developing the individual to better prepare them for life beyond Silcoates. Students have a dedicated work experience week in the Lower Sixth. Students are given guidance on how to find a placement, they set goals and targets for their placement and on their return to school, students review and reflect upon their experiences.

Work Experience not only builds skills but develops confidence and allows our students to stand out. It is another opportunity for Silcoates students to shine.
