I started year 10 in September, we need to find work experience, the deadline is November the 4th.

I have no idea where to get started or where to search for work experience, so far I've just been searching for "computer science work experience"/"art work experience" and haven't gotten close to finding a place yet. Can anybody help me with finding work experience in either of the two categories (or just tips/advice)

Sorry for putting this in the wrong section, new here.

instead of searching for "work experience," the best thing to do is find a specific company you would like to work with and contact them asking for work experience. most places don't advertise that they take work experience students, you just have to ask.

You can write up a cover letter and tailor it to wherever you're applying for. You can find example covering letters online. I'd start by finding local companies nearby who specialise in computer science, or art. Just over exaggerate your interest in the field and how you'd love to gain real life experience. Be more specific when searching though, such as "art gallery location", "cyber security location" or "technology firm location" etc.

Post them off to the address of the companies you find. You could also ring up to ask if they offer any form of work experience as well.
