FAQs The placement requires Personal Protection Equipment? Most placements have PPE available for students to use, however the school has a small supply of overalls and safety shoes that pupils can borrow if they are required. Why is the insurance certificate required? Under the Health & Safety (Training and Employment)

regulations 1990, students participating in work experience are regarded as the placement providers employees for the purpose of health & safety, therefore a prerequisite for permitting work experience placements is that the placement provider has Employer Liability Insurance in place. What to do if my child is ill or has an appointment? If for any reason your child cannot attend because of illness or has an appointment during the work placement please

inform the employer firstly and then the school office.
