My teachers are now reminding us that we have to find placements for work experience in Summer 2019 but we must starting searching now as finding placements is extremely difficult.
After going out and doing research on the internet, I can now understand that finding a placement is incredibly difficult.
Most of all, when I search for Year 10 work experience, it almost always comes up with real paying jobs that won't take in myself being an unsuitable age.

Does anyone have any tips for finding work experience? 🙂

Be persistent and don’t feel disheartened if a place doesn’t accept you, just apply somewhere else
If anything you can do more work experience in holidays or in Y11,12 etc

Usually, your school should help you in finding a work experience. It can literally be anything. I remember doing it last year in Year 10- i absolutely hated where my placement was but at least I developed some skills that are vital in the working world. Try asking in a local Library; they nearly always accept kids looking for work experience. Good Luck!!

Our school is leaving us to it unfortunately 😅! And I will try and check out my library nearby to see if they'll accept me! Thanks for the great advice and helpful information! 😊

I'd love to work in my preferred career areas of Science, Computer Science and IT or Law and Politics but finding work experience for those areas makes it look like it's very barren 😔
What work experience are you doing? If you don't mind me asking of course 😅

Thank you for the advice! 👍 Also, we have to apply for work experience for the summer next year. They really aren't budging with that 😅

Hiya, I completed my work experience just before the summer holidays. Your school is right you must start looking now as places fill up very quickly and I had a similar issue as you and couldn’t find anywhere for ages. What I would recommend most is talking to family, do you have a parent or uncle etc that has a job you would be interested in doing? Also go into your local town or shops in villages and ask them, annoyingly most big chains wont hire people under 16 even for work experience so ask more smaller businesses. Keep searching and communication between you and possible employers is key.
