Work Experience

Students at OSH will complete work experience placements in Summer Term of Years 10 and 12.

Work experience placements allow students to gain a deeper knowledge of work environments by spending a longer period in one workplace.  Work experience is extremely popular and is an excellent opportunity for students to undertake a very different role and develop new skills.  In many cases students may have definite ideas about potential employers or industries they would like to learn more about.  This allows them to develop a better understanding of their next step in terms of future study and training options allowing them to make more informed decisions.

To decide what placement would best suit you, it is a good idea to use the Careers Library and Test Tools that you can access on your Unifrog account ( 

As part of the work experience programme, students can either source their own placement or ask that a placement is sourced for them.
