Year 10 – Virtual Work Experience (V-WEX) Details

Virtual Work Experience (V-WEX) Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th May 2020
Dear parents / carers and Year 10 students,
Year 10’s who have taken their place to do a full week of STEM based virtual work experience,  do not need to complete this work, but may find the resources useful to refer to in future.
I am delighted to share a copy of the exciting schedule for your child’s two days of virtual work experience next week. The schedule and tasks in this booklet should be completed over Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th May. Students will also be able to access this booklet via INSIGHT. Please note that the PDF files are only needed if you are completing the alternative tasks (see below).
 
Please rest assured that no curriculum work will be set on these days, so there will be no falling behind with study as a result of this. All instructions are outlined on the first two pages of the booklet. Please do encourage your child to submit their work by the deadline of Friday 22nd May 2020. Each student, who produces adequate evidence, will receive a certificate for taking part, and there are also 5 prizes to be won too! The winners will be announced after half term. 
 
Virtual work experience is, by nature,  heavily Internet based. If this provides a problem please do use the alternative task booklet attached here.  If you are already receiving paper based work (by hand or mail delivery from school) this alternative schedule and  task booklet will be delivered or posted to you –  in readiness for virtual work experience to begin on Monday 18th May 2020. 
 
I you have any questions please do not hesitate to e-mail me helyara@st-marks.org.uk. I’m here to help.
 
Thank you for your support. I’m hope that this proves to be a really valuable experience.
 
Mrs Helyar
