Students Get Work Ready with Top Placements
Year 12 students at St Ambrose Barlow Sixth Form have been undertaking meaningful and relevant work placements this week to prepare them for their future careers.
Placements took place at a wide range of top companies and industries including Urban Vision, CAPITA, Northern Rail, Salford Royal Hospital, Trafford Council, Astra Zeneca, PZ Cuzzons, All Saints and a range of schools and nursery’s. Many had the chance to rotate between different departments within their company to gain a broad insight into how they operate.
All students have the chance to complete a work placement while at the sixth form. We recognise the work place demand for students with modern employability skills and we want our students to be prepared for their future work life as much as they are for their academic assessments. We work closely with a number of top businesses who offer placements and mentoring to our students.
