Year 12 Work Experience
Seaford Head Sixth Form, ensures that our Y12 students complete a one week work experience, at the end of their first year studying at S6H.
We work closely with employers to make sure students are linked to a relevant placement, individually tailored to suit their needs. High quality placements can bring a range of benefits and positive impacts and there is strong evidence to suggest that placements and work experience are extremely valuable to students, both in terms of their academic performance, personal development and future employment opportunities.
Students gain increased understanding and awareness of the world of work, accelerated personal maturity and gain ‘softer’ skills such as time keeping, presentation and communication.
