Over the next two months S3 students will be encouraged by their Guidance Teacher to find a placement themselves – the deadline for submission of this ‘self found placement’ is Friday 22nd June. This deadline cannot be extended for any circumstance and self found placement forms will not be accepted after this date.

A self found placement will allow the student to work in an environment of their choosing and ensure that a placement is attained. Self – found placement forms will be issued through Social Education lessons at the beginning of May and must be completed and handed back by 22nd June.
