Work experience is an opportunity for people to try out and gain experience in real-life jobs/tasks in a work environment. These kinds of placements can give an understanding of the world of work and can develop a range of skills and knowledge that will be valuable in the future.
At Norwood this is offered on an unpaid basis and typically lasts for 1-2 weeks, although varying lengths may be considered.
We try to cater for different needs, but because each placement is dealt with individually we can't guarantee a placement that suits you.
Please download and complete the application form and then email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Your request will then be acknowledged and sent to the relevant department(s) for consideration. You will receive a response to your enquiry to inform you whether we can offer you a placement or not.
Unfortunately we can't guarantee to find you a place, but the more information you can provide on the form and the more flexible you are, the greater the chances that we'll be able to help you.
You will speak with your supervisor and you may be offered an interview to provide you with interview experience. This is an opportunity for you both to discuss in more detail the tasks and experiences you have listed in your request and for the manager to be clear about what they can offer. It will help to establish initial expectations on both sides.
You should receive a letter or email confirming what time to start, where to report to and who to ask
You should meet the manager as arranged. They will take you through an induction process, which will include:
You will continue with your established programme/timetable of work. At the end of the first week you should meet with your manager to discuss and review how things have gone so far.
You should meet with your manager at the end of the placement to review and evaluate the placement overall and get some feedback on how you have performed.
