Work Experience

Transition Year students go on three weeks work experience per year.  This equates to one weeks work experience per term.  Students are required to work on a voluntary basis and employers are not expected to pay the students. The final week of work experience is required to be of a community based nature with students seeking work placements with local voluntary agencies such as Arklow Tidy Towns etc.  While the school will assist students in seeking work placements students are expected, with the assistance and encouragement of their parents/guardians to take sole responsibility for this task themselves.
