Work experience is designed to give each student a greater understanding of the world of work and to work with adults other than teachers.

King’s Oak Academy has a dedicated Work Experience Team to offer advice, guidance and support in helping students find an appropriate placement and make the most o the experience.  Later in the year, we will also be able to offer Year 10 careers support in deciding on their future pathway after GCSEs.

We are continually looking to expand the Academy’s work experience database in order to offer as many opportunities to our students as possible.  If you or your employer could offer  a Work Experience place to a student, please contact Mrs Alam-Lloyd or Mrs Felski at King’s Oak Academy.

Please support your child to find a placement – for more information and guidance please read the letter to Parents introducing Work Experience and other documents below.
