Unpaid work experience and volunteering can also be a great way to give your career a boost. Whether you need some experience in a particular sector to put on your CV or you want to fill a gap in your employment before starting a new job.
We help you explore the different opportunities to gain experience and give something back to your local community, whether you want to get involved for a short period or make an ongoing commitment.
Gaining work experience whilst you learn and gain recognised qualifications is a great way to develop your career, whether you’re just starting out or are ready to make a step up (or across!)
Apprenticeships are available to all age groups in a range of different sectors, levels and durations. Internships can offer you the opportunity to take a gap from your studies to apply what you’ve learnt. Traineeships are short placements for 16-18-year olds to try out a certain type of work before deciding if it’s right for you. Explore them all here.
