Getting into tertiary education and finding a good job has never been more difficult for young people than it is now. For this reason the careers counsellors at the European School think it is an extremely good idea for students in years five and six to find a placement that is relevant to their future career direction.
'Work experience' covers a wide range of possibilities. Students may choose a fairly conventional work placement, i.e. two weeks in a hospital or working in a law firm. Others may decide that a summer course is more worth their while, e.g. a class in ancient Greek or archaeology - subjects which do not always run at the school; still others may attend conferences, train to become sports coaches, attend music stages, go on archaeological digs. The point is that students are encouraged to expand their horizons and to adopt a sense of responsibility in the adult world. It is to be hoped that such experiences will continue their development into adulthood whilst making them a more desirable candidate for the very best tertiary institutions and future jobs.
