Gaining work experience opens your eyes to the world of work in a way that can’t be taught. For the duration of your placement you’ll learn while engaging with the role and start to love parts of working life.

If you’ve ever wondered what awaits you in the world of work, now’s a good time to sign up and find out. Our Work Experience Programme (for Year 10 - 11 and 16 - 25 year olds) focuses on meaningful and purposeful placements within Peabody and with selected external partners.

After a quick consultation, we can help you gain experience in a work placement that’s right for you. Completing a work experience stint bestows many benefits. You’ll most likely leave with the following:

  • an increased sense of confidence
  • a greater awareness of your strengths and weaknesses, and
  • a fuller understanding of and how to access the apprenticeship, training, further education, enterprise and employment opportunities available.
