    Hello all, I am currently doing my AS Levels in Maths, Business Studies, Geography and ICT. My school has paid for this programme called the "CfBT Education Trust" and basically we put down 3 places where we would like to do work experience in the summer for a week, and they'll try and get me into one, or an equivalent company. I can put down any company I want (even Microsoft! lol), as long as it's to do with what I want to do for a career which is in the computer science sort of direction. I've looked around and have found a few places e.g. BBC centre, BT, Mi5 lol.

    I was wondering if any of you know of any other places that sound good and is relevant to computers/computer science?

    They're doing this so that we can show uni's that we have experience, and this will increase our chances of getting into one.

    The work experience will be a short paragraph on your personal statement thats on your UCAS/university application, as long as it has some duties or tasks that can display some skill etc Teamwork, customers service.... Than it will make your personal statement more complete and means that you have got better chance of getting your uni offers. Also put it on your CV, its a great help when your trying to get your first job especially part time, you gain some experience and get regular money. Works in your favor.
