Work experience is the single most effective employer engagement intervention to help young people understand the world of work; it impacts positively on low and borderline achievers and learners with SEN and disengaged pupils; increases attainment; broadens aspirations; improves understanding of what’s needed to get a job; can lead to part-time employment.

‘Employer Engagement in education’, CfBT 2014



 At Grange Academy we provide many opportunities to experience the world of work. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum that aims to ensure that all our students are fully prepared to make well-informed decisions about their future career progression, employment, training or further education.

In Year 10 targeted students take part in a week work placement during the summer term.

In Year 11 students have the opportunity to spend one day every week on a work placement. This is usually a year-long placement in a specific workplace.
