Ten Top Tips for Teachers visiting students on work placements

To make your student’s work experience successful:

  • Familiarise yourself with the student’s work placement and job description
  • Telephone the employer in the first two of days to check that all is well, and arrange an appointment to visit the student on placement
  • Let the student know when you are due to visit
  • When you visit the student, introduce yourself to the employer and the student’s supervisor
  • Observe the student at work, and the work environment. If you have any concerns, pass them in to the school’s work experience co-ordinator.
  • Discuss the student’s progress with the supervisor
  • Speak to the student alone. If this is not possible you may wish to telephone the student at home after work
  • Encourage the student to work on areas that may need improvement
  • Discuss any problems with the student and the supervisor and try to find a solution
  • Complete and return any paperwork to the school’s work experience co-ordinator
