Do none of our local secondaries do work experience in Year 10 now? I've been told ours (Grey Court) only does it in sixth form. Is that normal?

A couple of years ago my daughter did it in Year 10 but I was told by a parent last year that it wasn't happening anymore. I think this was because of cuts by local authority - they had to do quite a lot of the vetting of placements - and because the providers of a lot of the places who are public sector eg. schools said they didn't have enough staff left to supervise the teenagers due to cuts. Very sad.
