Calling all businesses – The Folkestone Academy needs you!

From Monday 8th – Friday 12th May, 2017 The Folkestone Academy Year 10 students will be embarking on a week-long work experience programme.

Work experience provides students with the opportunity to discover what full time employment is like and to be given the chance to demonstrate many of the skills developed whilst at the Academy including communication, independence, resourcefulness, resilience, initiative, literacy and numeracy.

The Folkestone Academy hopes that local business and employers will be willing to support this programme by offering a placement to a student within your business. Students will be asked to formally apply for any vacancies that are made available and businesses may be involved in the recruitment process should they so wish.

Work experience is a vital aspect of young people’s education which The Folkestone Academy would be unable to deliver without the support of employers.
