    Dear Sir/Madam (try and get the name of the person you are addressing, it can actually make the the difference)
    I am writing to enquire about the possibility of completing work experience/shadowing with you. I am a x year student at x shool, currently studying.... I am interested in a career in ..... and therefore feel that the opportunity to spend time with you would be an invaluable experience. Please find attached a copy of my CV and if have any questions please let me know. Kind regards Your Name. This isn't great but I have managed to arrange work experience using it at places where this was the first contact

    I'd go straight in with the full pitch, because if they aren't already advertising something, you need to make the suggestion seem appealing to them, by looking like a good candidate. So write a CV and a covering letter.
