Work Experience Guidance for Supervisors
Each year the Department takes on a small number of Y10-Y13 school students for a short period of work experience. This is only available to students who have already been in contact with a supervisor and have their agreement.
The College's webpages contain full information and documents for supervisors taking on a work experience student.
