The information on the following pages will help you to secure interesting and relevant work experience placements to supplement the work you are doing at the Academy. Work placements are useful in
- helping you decide which types of work you would like to go into and give you a taste of working life.
- Making your CV look more developed and varied.
- Possibly leading to the chance of employment or an apprenticeship with your host company in the future.
Opportunities for placements that arise through the Academy’s links with employer partners will be allocated via an internal application process. You will be made aware of these when they become available. However, due to the number of work experience weeks, these placements cannot meet the full demand and students will need to actively research and secure their own placements. Please remember that you will undertake one week’s worth of work experience per year at BTEA.
I look forward to hearing from you.
