Work Based Learning
Work based learning forms a small part of traditional learning in a school. At LeAF Studio the experience of a professional work environment is built in from Year 10. We endeavour to integrate the experience of being at work into every aspect of school life.
In order for work experience to be relevant and purposeful, students at LeAF Studio are involved in the research and organisation of placement opportunities from the start of the process, identifying links between their individual interests and motivation and the industry sectors that meet these interests and exist in the local area. This personalised approach continues throughout, ranging from short, intensive placements to ongoing sustained positions depending upon the requirements of the student and employer.
As either aspiring professional athletes or performing artists, all students are also encouraged and supported to prepare and perform in a range of regional, national and even international performance environments, adopting a professional and dedicated approach to achieving their full potential through collaboration with our expert staff and external coaches and instructors.
