We will be offering two types of placements this academic year, either a weekly placement or a block work placement. The weekly placement will be a minimum commitment of 1.5 hours per week, this will be tailored to your availability and ideal for a college/ 6th form/ university student. The other placement will be a block of either one or two weeks, this is best suited for work experience. All will be offered at first come, first served basis.  In certain circumstances we may offer an extension for a volunteer to stay longer with us. This will only be offered once discussed and confirmed by senior leaders and HR.

Students requiring work placements as part of their degree or placement will be offered them by the heads of school if there is suitable availability and their university has completed the necessary safeguarding checks.
