    Admissions department at one of my local unis. Dad set me up, he worked in that dept for years as well as lecturing. I went to a meeting about admissions databases, entered GCSE grades for crap students onto the database & played with muppets figurines.

    I dunno, it just didn't feel like the kinda job I wanted to do. There was a lot of paperwork and red tape. Plus the hours were really long.

    Listening back to tape recordings was kinda interesting actually.

    I did 2 weeks at Cadbury chocolate factory IN their own little dental practice (ironic really)

    It was sooo boring. I realised I didn't want to become a dentist after :P

    But I took full advantage of the unwanted chocolates which were sold in bag loads for £1

    In Year 10 I did 2 weeks at Waterstones. I think I might end up doing some more work experience in my schools Maths Department on the work experience week as I want to teach, and health complications mean it's probably a good idea to not take on anything too strenuous!

    A week in a library. It was actually better than I was expecting; I basically drank tea and read to children the entire week

    Strangely, I worked at a different secondary school from my own. I did the audio engineering for the school's production of "The Wizard of Oz". It was arranged a bit last minute, but it was one of the best weeks I've ever had!

    I did my week's work experience in a primary school where my mum works as a teacher, but not in her class. At the time, I wanted to be a primary teacher and it was great experience.

    I worked in an old people's home for a week.
    When they were awake, they were funny ( but they weren't awake much ;D)
    I spent most of my time watching telly, but I did go for a walk with one of the resident's and a carer everyday.
    Played bingo, and one old man taught me to play dominoes!!!!
