Work Experience

We have had several questions this week regarding Work Experience and paperwork required. 

Work Experience week will take place 6th to 10th July 2020 and it is an expectation for all to participate.  It is vital that you apply as soon as possible especially to the large corporate companies and places like the NHS or Lockhead Martin as they have limited spaces and strict deadlines. 

The first thing that you need to do is complete the Consent Form and once your placement is confirmed the employer needs to complete and return the Placement Form (both attached).  Once we have received the placement form we will e mail the named contact on the form and then confirm back to you.

Any further questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact myself or Mrs Jackman on
