The consumer rights and review organisation, Which? also offer guidance excellent advice about how GCSE choice affects university applications.

Year 10 Work Experience Programme - Information for students

Year 10 Routes Post-16 and Work Experience Launch Evening

The format of the evening will involve a presentation in the school hall by Miss Wallis and Mr Pepper about potential post-16 pathways and the organisation of Year 10 Work Experience.

The purpose of the evening is two-fold: firstly, to encourage Year 10 students to start to think about their post-16 choices. This may seem premature given they are only just embarking upon their GCSE courses, but by September of Year 11, some students will have already begun the post-16 application process, and I would like students to start investigating their options now.

Secondly, NYBEP will provide you with important information about sourcing and organising a work experience placement, how to prepare for work experience, what is expected from students during the work experience week, and what the benefits of taking part in work experience are. Ryedale School’s work experience programme is overseen by Miss Wentworth, who will be available at the end of the presentation to answer queries you may have.

Following the formal presentation there will be a careers fair held in the Drama Studio and Dining Hall. A wide range of local providers will be available to talk to in order to begin the process of thinking about life beyond Ryedale. This will include 6th form providers of A-Level, BTEC and NVQ qualifications, universities, apprenticeship providers and employers.

Work experience takes place in the summer term of year 10, and the start of GCSE examinations is only slightly further away. During this time important, informed decisions have to be made about the future.

This event is designed to support students to make ambitious, yet sensible and well-informed choices, and we hope that you are able to attend.

NYBEP database of previously used work experience employers

You may like to use the following to start thinking about your work experience programme. This information will be given to you in your work experience pack during the work experience launch evening.

https//nybep.work-experience.co.uk

Username & Password: Ryedale2018

1. Login using the username and password given to you by your school Work Experience
Co-ordinator – DO NOT change your password

2. Click the Blue arrow to begin your search

3. If you know the name of the employer you are interested in, spell the first four or five letters of the employer’s name and go straight to the ‘Postcode’ box, add the first part e.g. YO18, YO18, YO62, or Town/City/Village in the relevant box. If you do not know where you want to go yet, leave the employer’s details blank and go to the ‘Category’

4. Select a ‘Category’, now complete the first part of your home postcode (as above). Next to this select ‘any’ from the mileage drop down box. Do not tick any of the boxes below this as it will reduce the number of results that you get. At the very bottom select your work experience dates.

5. You should now see a list of employers in your area. You can hover the mouse over the ‘Job Title’ to read more about the role.

6. If you are interested, click on the ‘Job Title’ to read more about the job, the working hours, the location, contact name and details, etc.

7. Make a note of all placements that you are interested in and prepare some notes as to how you will approach the employer. Think about: how you will introduce yourself, why you are interested, what you are studying, etc.… be confident.

8. Employers on the NYBEP database have previously offered placements to students, this DOES NOT mean that they will automatically do so again. If you would like some advice before contacting employers please see your Tutor/School Co-ordinator, but remember… do not delay, as placements will go!

9. Contact the employer in person, by telephone or email. Remember to introduce yourself and tell them which school you attend, be clear about your work experience dates, why you would like the opportunity for a placement and do confirm with the employer that it is on a voluntary basis. PLEASE NOTE – Employer details and contacts may have changed since they last offered a placement.

10. Don’t forget – you can approach ANY employer – they do not have to be pre-registered on the NYBEP database.

11. Once you have an offer of a placement… you must then arrange a convenient time to meet with them to get the Agreement/Consent Form completed. This form must be signed by you, the employer, your parent/carer (it is particularly important that the Employers Liability Insurance section is completed) – placements WILL NOT be able to go ahead without this.

Good Luck!!

Linking the curriculum to the world of work

It is vital that careers education is not seen as additional to the curriculum, but rather forms an integral part of it. At Ryedale School, we aim to ensure that students are made aware of the relevance to future careers of certain topics and skills that they are studying in class.

In every subject classroom, relevant careers posters are displayed. Staff are encouraged to use these posters regularly during lessons (see below).

School links with local employers and businesses

Local Enterprise Advisor Link

Ryedale School works in association with The Careers and Enterprise Company. We have a designated Local Enterprise Adviser who works alongside Miss Wallis and Ryedale School to provide effective work and career experiences for young people.

The Careers and Enterprise Company network is made up of Enterprise Coordinators and Enterprise Advisers.
Enterprise Coordinators support a group of senior business volunteers, known as Enterprise Advisers, who they match with one of the school or colleges in the network.

Enterprise Advisers use their knowledge of the local business landscape to support the head teacher or careers team to develop an effective careers plan and to create opportunities with their business contacts in the area for their school or college’s students.

Meet Danielle Leggatt, Ryedale School’s Enterprise Adviser; linked via the Career and Enterprise Company.

Danielle is a senior volunteer from the world of business. She works with leadership teams and careers coordinators in schools and colleges.

The Career and Enterprise Companies goal is to make it easier for schools and colleges to connect with local employers by providing strategic counsel, developing career engagement plans and unlocking relationships with local businesses.

Danielle Leggatt Name: Danielle Leggatt
Company: Karro Food Group Ltd
Sector: Food Manufacturing
Role: Group Learning & Development Manager

How did you start out in the food industry?
My first role in the food industry was as HR Projects at Karro Food Group (formerly known as GCFG) in 2005. Prior to this I had worked as HR Manager for various different industries (technology: IBM, Mivan Telecoms, iaxis. Banking: Abbey National plc). Since 2005, I have worked in HR/L&D at other food manufacturers (McCain Food Group, Kinnerton Confectionery), at global giant AkzoNobel and also worked as a tutor of English at Grimsby Institute. I have run my own coaching business since 2010, supporting individuals and Organisations for performance improvement and executive leadership and have recently returned to Karro Food Group this year (2018) to develop their learning and development strategy across our seven sites.

Why did you become an Enterprise Adviser?
Having 3 children myself and a career in Human Resources and Learning, I have experienced first-hand the challenges all stakeholders (parents, children, schools, employers) face in ensuring that the vast array of career options available are explained in a way to help engage young students and enable them to make an informed choice and secure valuable work experience.

What do you do as an Enterprise Adviser?
Working with the leadership team at Ryedale School, I support the development of the school’s Careers Strategy, offering advice, guidance and connections, bringing industry insight and experience to the careers agenda and to help create work experience and educational opportunities for teachers, parents and students, ultimately ensuring that both employers and schools are aligned in preparing students for their future career choices.
