Providing work placements can be extremely beneficial to employers as it allows a better understand of the ever changing landscape of education and qualifications.

Benefits include:

  • Giving staff the opportunity to work in a supervisory role 
  • Scope for finding future long-term employment with successful students
  • Raising company profile
  • WEX placement students may offer new ideas and/or a fresh perspective
  • Opportunities for staff to develop feedback and coaching skills
  • Helping young people to develop their CV and build a network of industry contacts
  • Opportunities to work with Bristol Cathedral Choir School across school events

Year 10 and 12 students undertake work placements within a block period, normally one week (dates available on main WEX page). 

We are always looking for interesting and varied experience of work opportunities for our students.  If you are a business owner/decision maker and are able to offer a Work Experience placement please contact Anna Duncan, Work Experience Coordinator on 0117 205 1605 ext 229 or aduncan@bristolcathedral.org.uk
