Work Experience

Work Experience Notice- February 2017

We are aware of problems accessing the work experience forms via the internet. We are currently trying to fix this problem, and thank you for your patience. Meanwhile, paper copies of the health check forms can be obtained from Student Office. We will be extending the deadline for these to be completed and handed in to Monday 20th February.

Work Experience dates for 2017 are Monday 17th July – Friday 21st July inclusive. For health and safety reasons all employers will be expected to have the adequate insurance policies and students need to be placed locally, within Devon County. We advise students and parents to research their own Work Experience placement carefully.

A letter with further details regarding work experience will be sent out after half term.


Work Experience – Summer 2016

Dawlish Community College year 10 students have been given much praise from business and industry after their work experience placements this summer.   Companies such as Flybe were impressed with all four students who managed to successfully get placed with them this year. We continue to be offered placements with the NHS as the impressive new research and development building in Exeter. We also had a successful placement with Exeter Cathedral for the first time this year and with many other local businesses and industry. The feedback has been very positive and will help us to continue making strong links with local business and industry here at Dawlish Community College. We are grateful to all companies who have given us work experience opportunities this year.

If your business is interested in offering work experience placements for next summer or you would like to work with Dawlish Community College or are interested, please contact Mrs Amanda Moore – Head of Careers.
