Year 11 World Of Work (WOW) Programme

 

Are you able to provide a short-term work placement through the World Of Work (WOW) Programme for a Year 11 student? If so, we would appreciate your help!

 

What is the World Of Work (WOW) Programme?

Each year, our Year 11 students undertake work experience placements and enjoy the opportunity to learn about the world of work by exploring possible career options. This WOW experience also enables them to actively develop skills for future employability. These placements involve the student working alongside professionals as they go about their daily business, where they will have the chance to gain first-hand insight into the challenges and opportunities of work.

Each student is responsible for sourcing their own placement, based on their career aspirations and subject interests. However, in a situation where a student is unable to secure a placement, RCHK assists them, by finding a suitable placement from volunteers, such as yourselves.

 

When is the WOW placement period?

14 – 23 November 2017

 

How can I find out more information and/or offer a placement at my company? 

Please contact Ms. Jen Dentry at dentrj1@rchk.edu.hk or Ms. Wilma Shen at shenw1@rchk.edu.hk

 

Insurance for the students will be covered, and the students will be given full guidance on what is expected of them during the placement experience.

 

Your willingness to provide our students with a work placement opportunity plays a pivotal role in the success of our “WOW” World of Work Programme. Thank you in advance for your assistance in this matter.
