Work experience is a chance for you to develop the skills required for the workplace. Work Experience placements with employers can take many forms in that it can be one day a week over a fixed term; full attendance over one or two working weeks or extending over longer terms such a 3 months, 6months, 1 year or possibly more. If you are attending school, check to see if work experience is being organised by your school. Some schools have a work experience programme built in. The common skills required for every workplace are similar to those you have used in school and were built into every lesson you attended.
If you would like to be involved in its development let us know. Each year we are proud to run a highly successful work experience scheme at Daresbury Laboratory. As part of this scheme we offer one week placements between April and August for Year 10, 11 and 12 students.
