We receive a large number of requests from school pupils and students about work experience opportunities, but as we are a very small organisation it is not possible for us to find placements for everyone. Sorry but we are not able to offer any work experience for students under the age of 18.
However, we do occasionally offer volunteer work placements for students looking for relevant experience, so it is always worth sending us an email to find out more.
Contact the CWPT office on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01793 752413.
