One of the Gatsby benchmarks that was introduced into Careers Education in schools by the Government is that every student should have first-hand experience of the workplace through work visits, work shadowing or work experience. We believe that this is such a valuable part of a students learning journey and brings a real relevance and motivation to their education.
We would be very grateful if HHBA members could offer one (or more) of our Year 10 students an opportunity to work within their business for 3 days this summer, from Weds 5th to Friday 7th July.
We do appreciate that this can be time consuming but really hope that, with enough notice, some members would be able to provide a placement. Unless, the area that the student works within is particularly high risk, most placements would be covered by your usual Employers Liability Insurance.
Please get in touch with me if you are able to support our students at email@example.com
Thank you so much.
