Work Experience

Work experience is an important part of the Curriculum at Nancealverne. It gives pupils the opportunity to develop and apply the skills learned in the classroom to a work situation. We try and give every pupil the opportunity during their time here to undertake some work experience but this tends to be when they are ready, rather than in Year 10 as is currently the case in mainstream schools. Pupils are supported by our staff as required and they all complete a logbook of their experiences.

Successful placements in the past have included McDonalds, Penzance railway station, Penwith College Beauty Salon, Moorvue Farm, St Justin Jewellery, St Just Aerodrome and Safeways.
