How to apply for work experience

It is important that you contact and arrange your work experience as soon as possible. You will be expected to write a letter of application and send a CV along with it. Don’t forget there may well be other schools trying to arrange their work experience placements too – so remember to stand out in your application and not to leave it too late.

Remember to include:

  • which school you are from and the contact details
  • the name of your work experience co-ordinator
  • the dates of your placement
  • your name and contact details
  • why you are interested in this company
  • anything else that will help you to stand out in your application.

To help assist you with your search, we have a database which contains the details of many employers who have offered work experience in the past. To find out if your school is signed up to our service, please speak to your school.

Apply now for a work experience placement.

Please note: Students will need to create a My Telford account to access the database.
