Work Experience

As part of their study, students undertake work experience in the local community up to three days per week. This enables students to develop valuable employability skills to compliment the work they do in school. It also helps to bridge the gap between school and work.


The Horizons Work Experience programme enables our students to access local facilities and meet new people whilst developing their skills. In the past, students from Horizons have gained employment after taking part in this programme.


This vital element of the Horizons provision would not be possible without the generosity and support of local businesses. Horizons students currently undertake work experience in the following businesses.
