Work Experience at Waldegrave
Work experience at Waldegrave is arranged by Kingston & Richmond Education Business Partnership (KREBP) to help young people to adapt to the world beyond the family and the classroom. It aims to bridge the gap between school and adult life.
Work experience contributes to the development of key skills, encourages maturity and self-reliance and supports pupils learning into adult life.
Work experience preparation and follow-up take place in Personal Development and Citizenship (PDC) lessons and English and Modern Foreign Languages. Students take part in interactive activities, have input from outside speakers and have access to ICT software.
