Week in the Workplace

Grade 10 | 5-8 June 2023

ISA's Week in the Workplace program is designed to provide our students with an opportunity to spend a week gaining valuable real-life work experience within a specific field of their choice. Our hope is that by gaining work experience in a field students are interested in, they will learn valuable life lessons that will impact their university choices and prospective career. We truly believe that students learn as much from outside the classroom as within!

Who: ISA grade 10 students in partnership with a local business or organisation.

What: A volunteer ‘work study’ job shadowing experience that gives students a chance to participate in an authentic work environment. Students will be working towards this placement throughout the academic year and will be expected to reflect daily on their experiences in order to share their learning and experience with their class.

When: 5-8 June, 2023 (normal business hours or as directed by host company)

Why: Today’s students need to develop and experience the ‘real world’ to assist in making important decisions and to witness and reflect on what skills and attributes are necessary to become a working professional.

If you, a colleague, friend, or family member might be interested in sharing their professional experiences with an ISA student, or just if you would like to learn more, we would love to hear from you at weekinworkplace@isa.nl.
