Dear Year 9 Students and Parents
Re: Work Experience – Next Steps
Firstly, I would like to thank you all for sending in your work experience reply forms. If you still haven’t done this, then you still have time as the deadline is Friday 30th April 2021.
As you are all aware that we are still uncertain to when companies will be fully opening again, how they will be operating and whether they will feel able to take work experience students. As new information becomes available, we will update you further but cannot be specific currently about when this will be.
In the meantime, there are some steps you can take to start finding a work placement, which are outlined below:
EBP have begun accepting students’ choices on their website but they won’t be able to make contact with employers until the country is back to normal. So please do log in and make your choices and then wait for further updates. Log in details for EBP are shown below and once you have logged in you are able to change your password:
If you wish to find your own work experience placement for November, the ‘Own Work Experience Form’ is available to print from the school website. If you wish to arrange your own placement, I would recommend that you make contact with the employer/organization directly and see if they are able to make decisions about work experience placements yet.
Please bear in mind that some employers may not be able to give you a response immediately, so it might be a good idea to have more than one option.
If have an employer that has already said that they are able to take you for work experience in November, then please complete and email the ‘Own work experience form’ and email it to Julie.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your understanding about the challenges of organising work experience in the current climate and rest assured we will provide updates as soon as we are able to do so.

Other cookies enable us and the third parties we work with to track and target the interests of visitors to our Services, and we refer to these as “advertising” or “analytical” cookies. For example, the embedding of YouTube and Vimeo videos, as added by individual schools, will require “advertising” cookies to be enabled in order to successfully play them.

Our Services allows schools to embed code which may potentially contain cookies. Please note embedded content, if displayed on one of our websites, has been added by the school and not by eSchools. The embedded content added by the school may require additional cookies or tracking technologies to be enabled in order to function.
