Virtual Work Experience – on demand sessions

The challenges brought about by Covid-19 have extended to the work experience sector too. We all know how important Work Experience is – from observing the day to day workings of an organisation, to making informed career choices – it’s something all Year 12 students complete at the end of their first year of 6th form as part of their programme of study.

In these unprecedented times, many aspects of education have moved to a blended learning programme which combines face to face teaching and remote provision via online platforms – and Work Experience is no different.

We’ve sourced these virtual work experience opportunities for you so that you can obtain up to date information shared by a variety of professionals from a range of career sectors. Whether it’s the health care sector you’re interested in, or maybe you see yourself as the next Anna Wintour – the sessions below have been put together by professionals who want to help you to succeed. There’s interviews with doctors, the RAF and Army, sports coaches and photographers to name but a few.

If you’re still undecided, then why not check out the Virtual Careers Fayres listed at the bottom of the page for further information.
