All my teachers are saying to find experience in your goal career for this summer but I'm unsure on how to get a job in the field of psychology? How should I find these jobs and how do I apply? My sixth form's been really vague about what to do. Also what jobs would you recommend for psychology?

Any volunteering with children, mental health, prison services ect should be good.
Have a look on do-it.org (I think that's correct)
No idea on jobs in psychology other than psychologist - I think most psychology related jobs are hard to secure without a master's but I may be wrong. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable will be along.

Sometimes just any work experience is good-not necessarily only in psychology as it gives you experience as to what working life is like.
Maybe see if you can find a psychologist and find out if you could shadow them?
Otherwise volunteering is something that can always be easily done.
In terms of getting an actual job you won't get one as a psychologist(you need a degree for a start plus even then having a masters is more favourable). Just get some experience with people, science, humans anything
