Virtual Work experience opportunity Summer 2021
We are excited to offer our Year 10 and 11 students the opportunity to take part in a virtual summer work experience offered by LEBC. (Leicester Education Business Company)
Sadly it means that the work experience placements some of the Year 10s and 11s had previously signed up for this summer will be unable to go ahead.
Due to the current situation with Covid and the uncertainty of the next few months both LEBC and myself, taking into account feedback from our business links, felt that it wasn't going to be a safe or suitable option to send students out on placements this summer.
LEBC are now offering the Virtual Programme in its place.
Please watch the video link to find out more about the virtual programme.
Dates for the virtual work experience to take place will be either the W/C 26th July 2021 or the W/C 2nd August 2021 so students can choose which week would suit them better.
Students who are interested in taking part will need to collect a letter of interest from the school office which will then need to be signed by parents/carers giving consent for me to then share students' names, D.O.B and personal email addresses with LEBC.
This will then need to be returned to me or the school office.
Once that information has been given to LEBC they will then send students an email with their own personal account login and password so they can sign up to the programme.
The cost of the work experience is £10 per student. This payment will be set up on students' Scopay accounts once they have signed up to the programme.
For those students in receipt of the Pupil Premium Grant, full funding towards the scheme will be covered through the school's grant. For any questions about this, please contact email@example.com
