Work Experience

Work Experience - Tuesday 3rd May – Friday 13th May 2022


Students in Year 10 have been issued with information about this year’s work experience which will
take place for 2 weeks from Tuesday 3rd May – Friday 13th May 2022. Monday 2nd May 2022 is a bank
holiday, therefore, students will carry out work experience for 9 days this year.

Please see below all the necessary forms which will require completion.

The deadline for the completion of the self-placement form is Friday 28th January 2022. This year is the first year that Westfield School are not working alongside Opportunity Sheffield; this means as a school we will not have a bank of jobs provided to us by an outside source. Therefore, we strongly urge all students, parents/carers to source their own placement. I will of course be on hand to help students and have some knowledge of the local area/organisations we have used in the past but starting with family, wider family and friends is strongly recommended.

Please note that when a placement has been found it is crucial that the prospective employer has
Employers Liability Insurance (ELI). Details are requested on the placement form. Please bear this in
mind, especially if you are planning a placement at a small business or family-based placement. 

If you have any concerns or require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Radford via school reception.
