In preparing our students for life after Penn Hall School there are a range of activities that help develop an understanding and appreciation of the world of work. We are becoming increasingly successful at securing meaningful work related experiences for our 16-19 students with recent placements including:

  • Students as classroom assistants at a local Primary School
  • Office and Administration experience at Walsall Homes.
  • Sales experience at Old Tree Nursery.
  • Work skills at Timken
  • Local Estate Agents

Links with Whizz Kidz will hopefully add to this list with opportunities to work in marque companies and participate in Work Skills Days where interview technique and writing CVs will be covered. Developing Enterprise skills is a main focus at this age group and this year as seen a group of students establish a company, Multitude, who have a management team with a diverse range of business ideas for this year.

The Vocational Lifeskills Programme below maps some of the activities available.
