Work experience

FairTrain logo

We provide hundreds of work experience placements each year.


Work experience provides a realistic insight into the world of work outside the classroom, with the emphasis on doing rather than watching.

It's rewarding for everyone involved, and aims to help raise young people's aspirations and achievements, developing self-confidence and influencing their plans for the future.

We also provide adult placements to provide relevant work experience for those who may be considering a return to work or change of career.

We have a work experience charter setting out what you can expect from us as an employer and what we expect from you while on your placement.

This section outlines the types of work experience placements available with us.

We also have information for managers on how to respond to requests and managing placements.
