Broomfield SILC


Work Experience

Here at Broomfield South SILC it is our aim to facilitate work experience opportunities for our Post 16 pupils.  These work experience placements are varied in destination and can be either internally or externally based depending on the needs and abilities of each individual. 


Through the placements pupils will:

  • Learn how work is different to school
  • Gain insight into a range of different roles
  • Work with a range of different people
  • Develop communication skills
  • Learn new skills
  • Develop knowledge of health and safety


On this page you will find examples of the work experience booklets the pupils complete during placements, example reports for employers, placements and some of our successes.



Below are a selection of the placements that our pupils have carried out this academic year.
