Work Experience & Mock Interviews

 

As part of the careers programme and as part  of  our  wider  curriculum,  we  would  like  to  develop  opportunities for senior  students to complete work experience. This will form a valuable  part of their future career consultations and contribute to their university and further employment opportunities. We plan to conduct work experience in the week commencing 1st July 2018. This would be for a minimum of one week but could be extended by mutual agreement to  longer periods over the summer.

We   are  looking  for  your  support  to  provide a  suitable  opportunity and experience for one of our students.  The work experience undertaken must take place within  the  Emirate of Dubai and be unpaid. It must be safe and represent a challenge for the student.  The experience, skills, knowledge and contacts  made  should  enhance  their  prospects  of  applying to university and give them life skills.  Undertaking real life work experiences gives them opportunities to grow.   At   the end  of  the  period  of  work  experience  we  will  ask  employers  to  write  a  short  letter  of  recommendation/report on the student.  This will contribute to our tracking and will form part of the  reference we provide when students apply for university.

We are also looking for professionals to speak to our students about working life and careers.  At certain times of the year, we will be setting up mock interviews for our students to practice the skills needed to secure a placement. If you are able to give up some time to 'interview' our students and feedback to them, please do get in touch. 

If you would like more information or are able to offer a placement, please contact Pieter Blignaut – Pieterb@rafflesis.com who will be able to provide you more information and answer any questions.  

Thank you for your continued support.

Yours faithfully,

Leena Atkins

Head of Sixth Form and Mathematics
