    don't be scared, should be fun. Gotta be better than school/college! I wish I'd had the chance to go on work experience.

    Yeah, I've not had any either. Apart from my years of helping out at a stable yard, which totally doesn't count.

    I got some bargains in the Virgin Megastore in Edinburgh as manc indie dosn't seem to sell that well over there, although the manager complimented me on my choice of music which was a first!

    As for you work experience I am sure they will be perfectly nice to you.

    mine did, but they also organised foreign language trips for that week, and my german trip clashed with it - it was a choice of holiday for a week or work. bit poo in a way, as I'd have liked the experience.

    I was educated at home up until sixth form, so I've not had any

    Just find some places you would like to do some work experience and write off lots of letters! I did some with school in year 10, but organised 3 weeks in various solicitors firms myself during the summer between AS and A2.

    work experience is great, sooooo much better than school but I suppose it depends on who you're working with

    I worked at a city centre bank, but it was a really posh fancy new plaza thing and was all really advanced and modern.

    The birds at the bank were fine as well, always an added bonus.

    When I did W.E at a call centre, me and four others were shown around this large building. The guide took each person to an office (except me) and walked off. I was left alone and had to ask random strangers where I was meant to be. Nobody seemed to know who I was or what I was doing there. After wasting half the day there, I eventually found another student and spent the day following him around.

    I didn't bother with the second week and nobody seemed to notice. I had 10 days written down on my form and I received the Trident certificate.

    THis sounds like my work experience. I kept doing half days as I actually fell asleep on the table for almost all of the days. My teacher came in to see how I was doing 3 times, all 3 times, I wasnt there
