Students on work experience - health and safety information for schools and employers

When students are on work experience, the primary responsibility for health and safety matters rests with the management of the host workplace.

See our guide: Students on Work Experience – a health and safety guide for schools and employers [PDF, 357 KB].

Work experience for students still at school can include:

  • Work experience through a Gateway programme
  • School organised work experience
  • Structured workplace learning
  • part-time/casual paid employment arrangement forming part of a learning programme.
