Think of placements which will help you gain and improve some of the skills which you need. For example communication skills, teamwork skills, if need be IT skills, paperwork, etc, etc...

For the first part, you don't really have to be working in similar surroundings to the RAF, do you? You can have that when you go on the 5th. You can try and find another type of work experience, which will enhance other types of skills too.

Try contacting the Civilian Personnel Officer on your local stations. You can arrange work experience with the MoD civilian staff on the base...it's a very useful option if the RAF can't take you directly.

yes it does. the idea of work experience is that you go and work for 5 days in a enviroment that you would like to in the future.
