Work Experience 

Welland Park Academy work in partnership with the Leicestershire Education Business Company (LEBC) to offer all Year 10 students the opportunity to apply for a work experience placement during the summer term. LEBC has been organising work placements for students across Leicestershire for more than 20 years and are the leading practitioners in this area.

LEBC are responsible for:
 

  • Setting up the work experience placement trying to meet each students preference including workplace assessment of health, safety and welfare arrangements.
     

  • Send parents a contract agreement which sets out the job description and generic young person’s risk assessment, which each student will take to interview.
     

There is the option, should you wish, for parents/students to organise their own work placement. LEBC will still carry out the checks and Health and safety assessment for each placement.

We believe strongly that work experience is of benefit to the students, it will encourage independence, develop confidence as well as giving a taster of the world of work.
