    Hi, I'm writing this work experience letter and I'm really not great at English so i was wondering if anyone could offer me some feedback? Thanks in advance!!

    Dear Fiona,

    I am writing to enquire whether you may be able to offer a voluntary placement to me at .... so I can gain some invaluable work experience. I am a year 12 student, currently studying Biology, Geography and Computer Science for my A-Levels at Harrogate Grammar School in Harrogate.
    I wish to gain an insight into computer science and the coding world; at university I know I need maths to get into Computer Science however I didn’t take it so I was hoping this experience would help in some way. My experience with computers is quite vast, I started coding in 2014 when I took computer science for one of my GCSE options and since then I’ve loved it and the various languages, encouraging me to continue to A-level computer science. I believe myself to be very hardworking, resilient and passionate about the subject as well as find it easy to over come challenges in the work place due to my experience in my current work.
    I would be very grateful if you were able to offer me a placement for 2 weeks from Monday 17th July to Friday 21st July 2017.
    Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.

    Yours sincerely,
    Saffron Calvert
