FORM 3 JOB SHADOW
At the end of the year, while the Form 1’s and 2’s are on end-of-year hikes, the Form
3‘s have the opportunity to gain work-related experience by job-shadowing. This will
to assist them in making a more informed decision about a future career choice.
We’d like each boy to spend three working days from 3 December to 5 December
2018 doing job shadowing at a company/occupation of their choice. We wanted to
inform you of this while the boys are away on Journey. Would you please mull this over
while your son is away and then, once he has returned to school, would you please
assist your son by discussing possible opportunities for job shadowing with him and
arranging for a suitable placement? The boys will be expected to complete a pre-
experience worksheet, and while on this experience complete three daily reflections,
an informational interview and a final report once the experience is over. All these
worksheets will be assessed as part of Life Orientation and will be added to their Form
4 Term 1 results.
I’ve included a letter of introduction from the school to facilitate the request for a job
shadow position. Employers also want to know just how much paperwork this will entail
from them, so I have included the Employer’s Report, which you can share with them
should they request it.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me should you have further queries.
