Changes to work experience application process
November 7, 2017 | By Julie Cherry |
NEW: Deadlines for applications
From the end of November 2017, we will be introducing deadlines by which applications will need to be received. Applications for 16+ work experience placements from January – March will need to be submitted before the end of November.
Similarly, if you wish to do work experience between April and June we will need to receive your application before the end of February. For work experience placements during July and August, applications will need to be submitted before 31 May. If you hope to do work experience between September and December, we will need to receive your application before the end of July.
Summary of deadlines
What about current applications?
Applications already received will be dealt with as usual.
What if I miss the deadline? Do I need to reapply?
NO. Any applications received after the deadline dates will be automatically transferred to the next time period.
Why are deadlines being introduced?
We try to offer work experience opportunities to everyone 16+ who applies but this isn’t always possible. We hope that streamlining the application process in this way will allow us to spend more time arranging placements.
What if I am not allocated a placement on my requested dates?
If we aren’t able to deal with your applications in your chosen time period, we will contact you and ask if you wish to transfer to the next slot.
Does this affect applications for Year 10 work experience?
