Work Experience Opportunity
This summer holiday, between Monday 16 and Friday 20 August (inclusive) we are running a summer school activities club for our new Year 7s with a local group called the ‘Big Step’. Dan Leverton, who runs this, is looking for current year 9/10/11 and sixth form students to get involved with this and gain work experience on our programmes. He’s ideally looking for around six student helpers.
Past students have found the week extremely rewarding. Please see what 2020 work experience students had to say about supporting the Big Step:

Due to the government guidance, this may/may not happen, but we are hoping for some positive news shortly which will enable this fantastic opportunity to take place. It makes sense to assume we can, and then if it cannot take place due to covid, we will inform those who have applied.
We are looking for students that:
Like working with other people
Want to get involved in helping deliver activities and workshops
Are positive role models (with excellent behaviour)
May have an interest in a future in teaching or coaching
Can offer help and advice to your new year 7s (during and after the programme)
What’s in it for these students:
Amazon Gift Voucher
Hours towards DofE and Leadership awards (if applicable)
Gain new skills and confidence
If your son/daughter is interested, please ask them to register their interest by completing this short form:
The deadline wll be16/07/21 so that we can the notify successful applications after the announcement on 19th July.
