Lockdowns and Covid meant very limited opportunities were available for students to be able to gain valuable work experience.  A number of organisations therefore offered virtual work experience (VWEx). Opportunities we shared with our students included in the music and arts industries, construction, tourism, broadcasting, aviation and financial services. Also big household names like Tesco and Spotify. Great Western Hospital hosted several ‘ask a question’ sessions and Norland Nannies offered free courses to students too.

Speakers for Schools has a lot of different VWEx opportunities.  Sign up with them here to get notifications of VWEx opportunities as soon as they become available.  Speakers for Schools is an organisation helping to level the playing field for young people of all backgrounds.

Please email Mrs McGovern in the Progression Office if you have any questions about work experience or if you have arranged your own work experience: mcgovernd@bradonforest.wilts.sch.uk
