Work Experience

Work experience week will be Monday 19th June -23rd June 2023.

For further information contact Mrs Mankoo via  


For many years (pre-Covid) a Work Experience (WEX) Scheme has been an integral part of the curriculum for students in Year 10 and this contributes substantially to the Careers Education programme provided. Court Moor is one of a very few schools in the local area that provides such a work experience for its students. The scheme involves every pupil spending a week in the workplace in an adult environment, responding to demands that are often very different to those met in school.    

Work Experience is an opportunity for pupils in Year 10 to carry out real work tasks on employers’ premises and experience as closely as possible the hours, working conditions and disciplines they would encounter as employees. The scheme aims to: motivate pupils towards further education and training; teach them about both the opportunities and the frustrations of working life; allow them to apply the social skills taught in school.
