We provide unpaid work experience placements for a wide variety of people, such as school students, college or university students, graduates, the unemployed and adults with learning or physical disabilities.

By taking part in work experience a person can gain:

  • practical knowledge to support theoretical learning
  • an insight into a potential future career
  • skills employers look for
  • a workplace reference to help with new employment
  • confidence in the workplace after a long absence e.g. redundancy, childcare or ill-health.

How to apply
