TRAINING and/or VOLUNTEERING

Volunteers, Work Experience & Visitors

We welcome all students from schools, colleges and universities to attend the Cedars Academy to gain work experience or work for us on a voluntary basis. Due to number of requests we receive, we have set the following guidelines:

Volunteers

Volunteers are requested to complete an application form (available from our website) as the same safeguarding criteria apply as if we were employing you. We will need to request and receive 2 suitable references and complete an enhanced DBS before you can start your voluntary work with us. Please also state the approximate length of time you would like to come into school and how many days per week.

  

College placements (NVQ & Health & Social Care A' Level students)

These are usually arranged by your college, however you may wish to approach us yourself and follow the guidelines that we have set down for year 10 and 11 students.

We understand that the length of your placements varies depending on the level of your qualification and you may need to evidence different things - all of this can be coordinated with the class teacher as part of your induction to the classroom.

 

Insight days for University students

As part of some university courses insight days are requested to observe how we deliver outstanding education.

These only usually last 1 to 2 days and a full induction is not normally included within these placements.

 

Teacher Training students

We are happy to accommodate students across school. Please e-mail the school through the contact us page and give a brief description of when you'd like to come and for how long.

 

Health placements

Although we do have physiotherapists, occupational therapists and other health colleagues visiting our school, they are not employed by us and have very busy schedules, so we cannot promise any time or placements with them. Placements for student nurses with the school nurse are arranged through the PCT.

 

All volunteers or those on work placement:

Will be given an induction (usually before the start date), which will include an on-line child protection course. Expectations and restrictions will also be clearly explained.

Must follow the direction of the class teacher at all times

May be offered the opportunity to attend appropriate on-site training with our staff

We have to limit the amount of volunteers and work experience pupils coming into school at any one time and we may not always be able to offer the full duration of their requested time. The school cannot promise to offer placements to all those who request them.

All requests/applications for placements should be made through Julie Ramsey, our Facilities & HR Manager.
