Work Experience


Work experience opportunities are provided for all students according to their needs and abilities through the “Working at Highfield” initiative where every student is encouraged to take responsibility for a job either in the class room or the wider school community. Throughout Key Stage 4 students are given opportunities to develop these work related skills during Employability sessions in Year 10 and through the BTEC vocational courses in years 10 and 11. Students in Post 16 also follow a Work Related Learning Programme, including Vocational Skills and Courses and Work Placements.

In 2016/17 Highfield School will be developing a supported internship route into Employment through the "Project SEARCH" partnership model, which will see the first interns enrolled for September 2017.
