International Work Experience / Exchange Programme

The Academy enjoys some excellent links with schools and businesses abroad. The Academy enjoys links with schools in Europe, America, India and China. Some of our key involvements are presented below.

The International Work Experience / Exchange Programme has developed, as an extension to the very successful European Work Experience / Exchange Programme that was established under the banner of the former Leigh City Technology College and which has been running for over 15 years.

The programme is open to Post 16 students, who may currently choose to work in China, India or France.

The Leigh Academy is the only school in the area which operates a work experience programme abroad, others may organise cultural exchanges.
