Work Experience Support

Comprehensive Work Experience Programme

We have built a comprehensive Work Experience programme for schools and students that cover all the required administration and planning activities in two easy to implement options.

Option One Students find their own work experience placement. Proactive Young People (PYP) will provide 3 school days* Work Experience sessions for specific students, offering 1-2-1 support from one of our experienced team members. *More days available at the agreed day rate

Option Two

The student will receive three sector choices. They will then enter these on the PYP system. Each student will be given their own username and password. They will be able to access a bespoke booking system and enter their Work Experience options. They will then receive an allocated placement.

PYP will also include three half-day Work Experience sessions offering 1-2-1 support.

Once a student has a placement arranged, PYP will visit the placement and carry out all relevant checks, following which a placement will be issued.
