As you probably know, work experience is now important whatever route you want to take in life; further education, employment or university.
At Year 10 the aim of work experience is to help you understand the world of work in a general sense, to build your confidence and help you learn about the importance of punctuality, teamwork etc.
Work experience in Year 12 is more focused and relevant to the career that you are aiming for or as part of the course you are studying.
In both cases finding your own placement is all part of the learning experience.
Your school co-ordinator will provide you with a guide to help you find a placement and there are other tips available on the resources page.
