The goal of the Work Experience Programme is for students to develop a better understanding of the links between school and the skills students will need in their working life. This Work Experience will also give students a chance to meet working professionals to inquire about the daily tasks, responsibilities, working day structure, qualifications needed and to learn more about how they arrived at where they are today in their profession. We feel confident that students will enhance not only their communications and leadership skills, they will learn more about their own strengths and interests throughout this process. Work experience may also help students navigate future university and career decisions.
This year’s Work Experience Programme will take place June 3 – 7, the final full week of school. Work Experience is compulsory for all Grade 10 students and will function as the cumulation of their MYP learning journey. We are currently working towards developing a database of workplace options, however, if requested and approved, students can arrange their own work experience placement.
Please consider registering to host two or more students in June by completing this FORM by 3 May. We are reaching out to the UNIS Hanoi Community for your help in creating meaningful work experience placements. Even if your workplace is not a match for students this year, we would still appreciate adding your company or organisation to our database of placement options for future years. We want to expand the options for our students as this programme grows.
Your support is VERY much appreciated!
