Enterprise & Work-Experience
Knowledge and understanding of Enterprise SKills will be developed and embedded within the curriculum e.g. Enterprise Days and BTEC Workskills course. Enterprise skills cover many aspects of our S.H.A.P.E framework.
We offer pupils in KS4 & 5 the unique opportunity for on-going work experience. Normally work experience placements are between one or two weeks, however, spreading this opportunity over KS4 & KS5 will instil within our pupils the abilities & attributes they need to pursue work and be successful.
We believe that work experience is invaluable to our pupil’s preparation for adult life and many of our pupils would benefit from a longer-term investment in this area so when they leave PHOENIXPLACE they can confidently approach employment or other opportunities.
We have established links within the community to provide on-going work-experience placements, developing skills and knowledge in retail, childcare, horticulture and the food industry.
