As part of our Year 12 students curriculum we strive to provide bespoke work experience placements matched to each students career aim. As such we are currently looking for businesses/professionals to provide a work experience placement (can be a couple of days or up to 2 weeks, whatever is most suitable for those involved) for students interested in careers in the following areas:
The placement would ideally be during the students summer holidays (20th July until 31st Aug), so as not to disrupt their academic studies, but we are flexible with this if needed.
Any queries and offers can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
