Manor High School are working in partnership with the Leicestershire Education Business Company (LEBC) and are offering all Year 10 students the opportunity to apply for a work experience placement. LEBC has been organising work placements for students across Leicestershire for more than 20 years and are the leading practitioners in this area.
The cost for a student to take part in 2017-2018 is £40 per placement. For this price LEBC will:
- Set up of 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.
- Should you wish to organise your own work placement LEBC will carry out the checks for a cost of £35.
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. With this in mind we have subsidised the cost to a rate significantly lower than other local schools to ensure as many students can take part as possible.
