Y10 Health and Social Work Experience

Category : App Only Letters

Dear Parent/Carer,

Y10 Health and Social Work Experience

As part of your child’s Health and Social Care course they require to complete a one-week work experience placement. The dates for this years’ work experience has been arranged for:

Monday 14th March to Friday 18th March 2022

As part of this placement we require you to complete and return the following work experience documents:

Form 1 Parental Consent – Provides the necessary parental consent for students to go out on placement. LINK: https://forms.office.com/r/J9AMpXBJw6
Form 2 Placement ‘Self Find’ – to be completed by placement provider – ONLY for students who have sourced their own placement. Students will receive a hardcopy version of this document.

If you can help to support your child to secure a placement via a ‘self-find’ placement, that would be very helpful, as placement offers have been reduced this year due to the pandemic.

1. Please complete and return form 1 immediately via the link above (hard copies are available from the careers department on request).
2. If you secure a placement for your child the deadline for completed and returned ‘Self Find’ (form 2) is Friday the 14th January 2022.

As part of your child’s preparations they have discussed and agreed to the work experience requirements and expectations during their placement. A copy of these are shown on page two of this document. Please discuss these with your child and support them to meet these expectations.

Thank you for your continued support.
Ms Liddell
Head of Careers and Work-Related Learning
