Work experience is not only valuable in its own right but also essential if you hope to apply to certain university courses (Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Social Work, Teaching, Veterinary Science etc). Work experience will give you an insight into the world of work and help you to decide if that sector is the right career for you. If you are looking at progressing on to an apprenticeship/employment work experience will help you stand out on your CV and at interview. All students at Notre Dame have the opportunity to complete a work experience placement during their time at College. Work experience is compulsory for students on a level 2 programme, T-level programme and those students studying on a double vocational subject. Virtual work experience opportunities are emailed out regularly to all students by the careers team. If you would like support finding a work experience placement, please email the careers department firstname.lastname@example.org or book a careers appointment.
