What is Virtual Work Experience?

Unfortunately, due to the current COVID 19 restrictions most work experience placements on employers premises have been cancelled.

However many employers are still committed to work experience and have developed some online packages which are called "Virtual Work Experience"

Virtual Work Experience provides you with the opportunity to gain experience of the work place, learn about the working world and test out some occupations and subjects you might not of even considered from the comfort of your own home.

It gives you the opportunity to develop employability skills by undertaking real life work based projects. These projects can take anything from 1 hour up to a full week. You can also add these experiences to your CV and future job/course applications as they will better prepare you for your next career steps.
