    Hi! I'm just looking for a bit of advice.

    On a Friday every 2 weeks at sixth form, I have 4 hours of frees and only 1 hour of lessons.
    I have no work experience currently but am planning on going to university to study languages and then become a secondary school teacher, and I'd like to get some form of even slightly relevant work experience.

    Do you think it's worth considering doing 2 hours of work experience at the local primary school as a teaching assistant every friday in which I have this many frees? This still gives me 2 hours of frees and my lesson, which is more than enough.

    If so, how would I go about asking the sixth form staff, and also about asking the staff at the primary school?
