Whitchurch High School students join 'What's Next?' work experience programme

Students from Whitchurch High School will be among a new cohort from year 12 ('lower 6th form') on the What's Next? work experience programme next month (July).

They will be joined by students from Cantonian High School, Cardiff West Community High School, and Ysgol Glantaf as part of a staged roll-out of the programme, which is reintroducing work experience in Cardiff.

A total of 460 work experience placements have been secured from 60 employers.

The news follows an award and celebration event to recognise the achievements made through the programme so far.


Students and host employers came together to celebrate the achievements of students from Cantonian High School (pictured).


During the event, students shared inspiring reflections through speeches, video testimonials, and written thoughts, showcasing their personal and professional growth. Host employers shared their own positive experiences, highlighting the impact of their mentorship on the students' development. Certificates were awarded to the students, celebrating their outstanding achievements.


A Cardiff Council spokesperson said, "This is a great way to highlight the need for more local employers to come forward and help the Cardiff Commitment in supporting young people.


"It's an opportunity for employers to prepare Cardiff's young people for the world of work by giving them first-hand opportunities and providing invaluable guidance and inspiration to the next generation of workers."
