Every student, starting in Year 10, is required to successfully complete a Real World Learning Project. Real World Learning Projects (RWLP) are School 21’s take on work experience and provide both student and their host workplace with something that is more meaningful and authentic than traditional work experience. Spending half a day a week in the workplace, for a term and a half, students are tasked with solving an authentic problem for a real organisation. The projects can take any form, as long as there is an authentic outcome that students are required to produce. This could be a piece of research, a social media campaign, the redesign of a process, promotional videos, the creation of a piece of art or the planning and delivery of a community event etc. It should be something that would be of genuine value to the organisation.
We are proud to partner with a diverse mix of organisations, from retailers like John Lewis to local charities such as Bow Arts. each organisation has tasked our students to solve a meaningful and challenging problem that will add value to their work!
