Year 10 Work Experience 2019

Year 10 Work Experience

25th February to 1st March 2019

There are two types of work experience placements:

1. Work experience placements found through family, friends or private arrangements (own placements)

2. Work experience placements offered by Y C Herts

Both types of placements need to be entered on to the Link2+ work experience site so that they can be health and safety checked.

Medical and Consent Forms

The main form we must receive before work experience can be undertaken is below:


The form should be completed and given to the front desk by the main entrance as soon as possible.

Year 10 Interview Day – 13th November 2018

Year 10 will participate in an interview day on 13th November 2018. This will involve students having a one-to-one mock interview and feedback with HR professionals from our Enterprise Partner Watford Community Housing. The purpose of this is to Prepare students for their work experience interviews. Students are expected to have a completed CV and wear business attire for the day. 

Using the Link 2+ Work Experience Site

All placements whether own placements or YC Herts placements are selected or entered through the Link2+ website:

Login will require a username and password

Username: This is your first and last names separated by a space with an uppercase letter for the first letter of each. This username is as your name appears no the school register. Double barrel surnames are separated by a hyphen.

Password: A four digit number supplied by your form tutor.

Below are some documents to help you to use this system. 



YC Herts Placements

Students should select these placements if they are unable to arrange an own placement. They are able to search the database and select a few choices in order of preference. These places are allocated on a first come first served basis. Students should check the site regularly to see which places they have been allocated. The deadline for the selection of places is the 12th November 2019. After this date we will begin sending out contracts to employers and students will be able to contact employers and arrange interviews. 


Own Placements

Own placement details should be entered on to the Link2+ system directly. The paper copy is only to help you record the details for entry on to the system. The deadline for own placements to be entered on to the system is 12th November 2018. We cannot except any placements after this point as it incurs significant additional costs due to late health and safety checks.
