Supported Employment & Vocational Skills

In order to develop their workplace and employability skills, all students in the 6th form carry out regular work experience in the school setting and also a weekly external work placement in the local community. Work placements are chosen in collaboration with each student to reflect their strengths, interests and also to give them experience of different types of jobs that may be available to them post-19. 

Current external work placements include the Devon Air Ambulance Charity Shop, the Bicton Animal Husbandry Centre, Barratt Homes offices, West Hill Garden Centre, Budleigh Riding School, St. Sidwells Community café and St. Loyes’ Hair Salon.
