At Stubbin Wood School, we believe that it is really important for our students to have practical experience of work before leaving us. This really helps our students to shape their thoughts, develop their skills and focus on jobs that they will enjoy in the future.
Volunteering is a fun way to learn new skills, meet new friends and experience a different range of job roles.
The following websites link you with a wide range of organisations that have volunteering opportunities.
An internship is a period of work experience, offered by an organisation, lasting for a fixed period of time anywhere between a week and 12 months. They are typically undertaken by students looking to gain relevant skills.
Employers use these placements to assess a student's or graduate's capability and often recruit employees from their interns, rather than advertise their vacancies externally.
Preparing for Adulthood is an organisation that supports people with SEND to have equal life chances as they move into adult hood. Here you’ll find a range of links to organisations that offer support in finding your internship.
