At St. Patrick’s Academy, we encourage our sixth formers to be pro-active in securing work experience placements. We guide our students towards relevant placements and provide support with completing administration and advice on personal presentation prior to attending. Many students independently organise their own work placements and others are fortunate to avail of the welcome opportunities from companies who contact the school directly to offer places.
All our Health & Social Care students complete a placement in in a care home attending once a week over a six week period. They also participate in a three day placement in a primary school.
