We do not hold the information requested because schools have never been required to provide information about pre-16 work experience.

For the first time, from September 2013, it will be a requirement for schools and colleges to record work experience by 16 to 18-year-olds as part of Government plans to expand the provision of work experience for this age group. This information will, therefore, be available in the future.
