Work Experience

Experiencing the 'World of Work':

We offer a comprehensive work experience programme in order to develop an understanding of the world of work. We have an extensive menu of placements in various sectors including cleaning, catering, hospitality, admin, retail and construction. We also have opportunities to learn work related skills within our social enterprise business, through the Learning For Life Charity including two charity shops (West Lea in the Green and West Lea in the Town), West Lea Coffee Cart and our online eBay shop.

We aim for all our young people to experience and have access to:

  • Opportunities to develop relevant work related skills
  • Chances to improve their employability
  • Advice and guidance on career direction
  • Opportunities to become active citizens in the local community
  • A chance to build confidence in the workplace and achieve a genuine sense of achievement
