Work experience

From the 29th October until the 23rd November 2018 the BTEC Sport Year 13 students completed their four week work placements at a variety of organisations as part of Unit: 26 Work Experience in Sport. All of the students found their own placements e.g. Anytime Fitness, Schools PE Departments, LBA and Fitness For less to name but a few. The range of placements was very good and included some private top end health clubs to secondary and primary educational establishments. Students were able to present and talk at length about their experiences to staff and fellow students alike. Many have now been offered the opportunity to work full time for their placement employers after completing the level 3 course here at St Charles or on casual/part -time basis for those going on to university.

The presentations can currently be seen on display in the main entrance foyer.
