    I am beginning to write my work experience statement to send in immediately in September. I am applying to NHS North Devon and this is the question:
    ' This is your opportunity to promote yourself. Please identify why would you would like to gain some work experience within a hospital environment in the NHS. What are your career aspirations.' I am currently going into Year 10 and am 14 years old. I have sent them a letter before, but I was too young then. I am struggling on how to start to my reply to this question, I know what to put IN the response, just not how to start it - help?

    My advice is to start, with personal statements or letters like this or anything, with what you want to say and then you can think about the introduction/conclusion if applicable. Personally I wouldn't read too much into it as long as it doesn't sound wrong or too flowery or anything like that, but again write your content first and then think of an introduction that covers the general points in short sentences regarding the topic. Just a starter for 10
