Welcome to

St Albans Girls' School

Professional Placement Week

In July of Year 12, students have the opportunity to participate in a week of work experience to develop their employabilty skills.  

A recent survey showed two thirds of employers look for people  with relevant work experience because it helps them prepare for work and develop general business awareness. Importantly, one third of employers felt that applicants did not have a satisfactory level of knowledge about their chosen career or job.

In one week it is unlikely that it will  enable students the time to develop job-specific skills, but it can give them an insight into the work involved. It also shows to future employers that students have motivation and commitment. 

If you are able to offer a placement to a Year 12 student or would like more information about Professional Placement week please email
