Unfortunately, this year's Year 12 work experience week has been cancelled due to the current COVID-19 outbreak. Okehampton College would like to take this opportunity to thank all those people, companies and organisations that offered to help give work experience to our students. It is a week that is usually really looked forward to and without your support it would not be as enjoyable or valuable.

Here are just some of the placements at organisations that Okehampton College students have managed to obtain.
Information about Year 12 Work Experience
Y12 Work Experience 6th - 10th of July 2020
The Government has introduced a compulsory scheme within Post-16 Education that all students must undertake a Work Experience Programme. Work Experience is now a key component of all 16-19 study programmes and all students are expected to undertake work related training as part of their programme of study. The scheme enables students to spend a week in a situation where they gain a first-hand experience of the ‘world of work’ learning many crucial skills. We will launch this scheme to the Year 12 students officially in September during a Year 12 induction morning, all students are informed of their expectations and provided with a timeline that should be met in order to secure their chosen placement.
