At Carew Academy, Work Experience is an integral part of the Year 10 and Year 11 curriculum.

Work Experience gives students a greater understanding of the world of work and prepares students for the responsibilities of adult life. The Carew Academy Work Experience Programmes in both 2013-2014 and 2014-15 were extremely successful, as can be seen by clicking on the link below.

We are particularly proud of those students who have secured part-time or full-time employment (apprenticeship) following their successful Work Experience placements.
