Year 11 WOW Programme

Year 11 WOW Programme
Introduction

Each year, our Year 11 students will go on work placements and enjoy the opportunity to not only learn about the world of work and explore possible career options but also to actively develop skills for future enterprise and employability.

These work placements involve working alongside professionals as they go about their daily business, and are, for many students, the highlight of their school year where they may have the opportunity to gain a real insight into the challenges and opportunities of work.

The “WOW” programme is set up aiming to introduce to students the real “World of Work” and help them channel their future subject choices and career aspirations.

What’s New

YEAR 11 “WOW” EXPERIENCE NEEDS YOUR HELP!

Year 11 students will be going on their work experience placements from November 7-18, 2016, as part of their “WOW” World of Work Programme.

The students are in charge of sourcing their own placement, based on their career aspirations or subject interests. However, it is sometimes the case that we have to help the students out, and provide a placement for them.

We asking for your help – if you know of anyone who might be able to offer an interesting and informative work placement, in Hong Kong, please let me know. Insurance for the students is covered by the school, and the prospective ’employers’ will be giving full guidance of what is expected from them and the students during the placement experience.

Please contact Mr. Nick Georgiou (Head of Year 11) at georgn1@rchk.edu.hk or Ms. Wilma Shen at wshen@rchk.edu.hk.
