Work placements for pupils at Woodlands High School, Cardiff
A very few older pupils at Woodlands High School develop highly beneficial independence skills when they attend work placements, which are well matched to their personalities, skills and interests. Pupils gain valuable experience in applying, and being interviewed, for placements at a range of vocational settings including a dogs home, local museum and theatre. In addition, longer internships at local hospitals and universities give pupils a range of wider experiences including laboratory work, catering and information services. This helps them to develop the confidence to adapt to new situations, tasks and challenges, that will serve them well in various aspects of their personal and professional lives.
