Work Experience

Manor High School work in partnership with the Leicestershire Education Business Company (LEBC) and offer 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. 

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.  

Should you have any queries please contact Jim Croucher via school, or email jcroucher@manorhigh.leics.sch.uk

Careers Meetings

Our Year 11s work with our careers advisor, Cheryl McCarthy, through the 1 to 1 interview process. Cheryl helps students focus on what they are doing when applying to sixth from providers and a lot more too. You can view an example of an action plan that Cheryl sends to each Year 11 student after they have had their 1 to 1 interview.
