Transition Year Placements

Concern has two distinct offerings for Transition Year Students over the 2019/20 school year. 

Concern TY Placements

TY Work Experience  

We host a limited number of Transition Year students for week-long general work experience placements on an individual basis between October and January. Placements are allocated on a first request basis and designed to give students a brief exposure to working life in a large office. We are unable to accept students on a one day per week basis.

TY Academy 

Separate from our Work Experience placements described above we run TY Academy weeks in November and February for groups of students. The Academy weeks are for students who are keen to explore what it means to be active citizens. Students will have the opportunity to work collaboratively on joint projects linked to the Sustainable Development Goals. During each of these weeks, we will host 15 Transition year Students on a programme that includes seminars and simulations of work in various roles.

TY Academy

Students accepted for the TY Academy must agree to complete a follow-on project in their school (campaigning or fundraising) and have their application signed off by a teacher in order to be considered. 

Academy places are distinct from regular work experience placements. Places are not guaranteed and applications will be judged according to the information on the form. Interested students should complete and return the application form below by post or by email to [email protected]
