Work Related Learning Guide
Produced by the former Department for Children, Schools and Families, this work-related learning guide is aimed at young people and their parents or carers, employers, primary and secondary schools and colleges, and Education Business Partnership Organisations.
The guide includes information on providing work-related learning and work experience placements, health and safety requirements and additional information. It includes work experience placements abroad, child employment law, the standards for work experience and careers education.
The guide explains:
• what work related learning is
• who is involved in making it happen
• how to get the best out of it
• how young people are kept safe while they are doing it
• other things that are useful to know
• where to find further information, help and support.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
