Work-related experience

Work experience is now often called work-related learning. It can help students build their knowledge and experience of the workplace.

Find out more about work-related learning

As a parent or carer, you can find out more about how your young person's school delivers work-related training by contacting the school. The school should also be able to help you with any questions or concerns you have about work experience or work-related learning.
