First off, an apology. My role is not directly involved in PSHE, but there isnt a forum for CEG so i am hijacking this one!! I wanted to know if anyone ahs experience of legislation regarding work related learning? I have only taken over as careers coordinator for my school this year and one of my major roles is co-ordinating work experinece placements for our year 10's. My principal told me that my predecessor seemed to think there was some form of guidance that KS4 pupils were required to do at least 9 days of work experience. I have tried searching what i think are relevant government/DoE web pages etc. but i can find nothing directly related to minimum requirements. Is there anyone out there that may have experience in this field that can tell me is there any formal legislation or guidance about mimumum requirements for work experience placements? If so can you direct me to a website or similar source of informataion. Many thanks.
