Virtual Work Experience with Unifrog

Students can now sign up for Virtual Work Experience Week, which will take place during school hours from 1 to 5 July. This is free for all Y10–13 students.

Each day, a different employer will set students a workplace task that helps them to develop key transferable skills to boost their CVs. Encourage students to get a taste of real-world work directly from some of the biggest name employers! Taking part during Virtual Work Experience Week will also help you work towards achieving both Gatsby Benchmarks 5 and 6.
