Leeds City Academy


Work Experience

Paving Pathways to Employment

At Leeds City Academy we provide a vibrant work experience programme for all Year 10 students. This usually takes place in the final Half Term of the academic year and comprises of a one-week full-time work experience placement.

We maintain excellent partnerships with businesses in and around the Leeds City Region and students work in a variety of sectors from Health Care to Engineering. During their time, students will gain invaluable work experience and a taste of the world of regular employment. Students can also sample training opportunities and some maintain their contacts with these employers for job opportunities at a later stage.

We are constantly seeking aspirational opportunities for our students and offer advice and guidance to assist them when approaching prospective employers for work experience.  We also focus on employability skills to help students move into a career after they have completed their education. 

The opportunity to spend time on work experience enhances students learning and helps to contextualise their academic studies in the Academy.
