Work Experience and Community Service
We recognise that work experience and community service is a very important aspect of positive career development and constantly encourage our students to develop their experiences during their time at Invicta.
Work experience and Community Service can be completed in a variety of ways at Invicta, through our Personal Opportunities Programme, as well as ongoing placements or block placements in the school holidays. We have a database of work experience contacts both locally, nationally and internationally which our students can use throughout the year and we spend time through PSHEE and one-to-one careers interviews, helping students to develop their CV writing skills and teaching them how to apply to for work experience places.
We also support a range of voluntary and charitable organisations by providing students on placement. However, we encourage our students to recognise the valuable experiences they can get through other extra-curricular commitments such as the Duke of Edinburgh Award, STEM Club or Debating Society to name but a few!
What the students say:
"I have been encouraged throughout my years at Invicta to do work experience, advice which I took on, spending a week of my summer at The Daily Telegraph in London. This gave me an insight into the world of a journalist, a field I am interested in for the future." (Year 12 Student).
