 We try and run set weeks for students here in the Bristol office as we feel that this gives them the best experience that is not just shadowing an engineer at a desk. Therefore we ask that in the final box in section 4.2 of the application form that students state “Bristol Y10 week 1”.

 If the chosen work experience dates do not fall within your school’s allocated slots then students can still apply (leaving the final box in section 4.2 blank). If there are any businesses or teams looking for ad hoc work experience students they will look at this list.   

 Closing dates will be the end of March 2019. Please ensure that all application forms get sent to

 All applications should be submitted before the deadline of 27th January 2019. As places will be limited, we will be offering placements on a rolling basis, therefore students should apply early to avoid disappointment.
