Work Experience

Students in Years 10 and 12 have the opportunity to take part Fullbrook’s work experience scheme, where they gain first-hand knowledge of the world of work.  We encourage students to secure their own placement for work experience, but there is plenty of support and advice on hand if needed.

 

Current Work Experience Opportunities

Chertsey Museum – are offering 5 spaces for local pupils to join them for a week at Chertsey Museum to learn some of the skills needed to work in the heritage sector. During their time with the museum, students will explore all different aspects of the museum, go on a field trip, and create a display in the museum. This is a great opportunity to gain some experience in a sector which can be challenging to break into. Please read the placement letter here if you have an interest in history or working with the public.
