Work Experience at Three Ways has been ongoing for many years and we have completed many incredibly successful placements.
Some of the pupils find their own placements and the Work Experience Co-ordinator supports the placements of others.
We have ongoing connections with employers in and around Bath.
External placements increase pupil’s confidence, self-esteem and improve their communication skills. School can be a comfortable environment where all staff know the pupils well, however, out in the workplace they have to learn how to build those relationships from scratch and also how to maintain those relationships.
Independent travel can also be a learning objective for some of our pupils. Pupils begin to develop this in school during Key Stage 4 and Key Stage 5. We are committed to the pupil’s progress in all areas of development and are very proud of how much success they have had in this area.
Site Manager at St Martins Garden Primary School:
“We have had pupils from Three Ways on Work Experience placements for a few years now and all of them have worked out very well. It has been a pleasure having them here.”
Parent: “My son really matured when he did his Work Experience, he had to get himself there and back home by bike.”
