The opportunity to undertake Work Experience as part of the normal course of events in Year 10, is positive for students for many reasons. But I shall limit my discussion to two important ones, particularly for students in Year 10.
First of all, school based Work Experience should always, in my opinion, provide an opportunity for a young person to test a career area of genuine, possible career interest to them.
It is not about doing just anything for the sake of filling in a week. Nor is it, if the young person has a part time job already, doing more of the same. Neither is about working in a family business. They can get that experience any time. It is, as I have indicated above, about testing a career area of genuine, future career interest.
