Gain work experience in a school or college

11 June 2015

An exciting opportunity to apply for work experience via the Associates in Schools (UWAS) Scheme.

This is an exciting opportunity to gain valuable work experience in a school classroom, where you will be supporting teachers in either a primary or secondary school or at a sixth form college.

The scheme consists of a 15-day placement, working as a volunteer teaching assistant. While the scheme provides an opportunity to test the waters of a possible career, it’s also a chance to be a role model for young people and raise their aspirations towards higher education.

The placement can be completed in weekly blocks or in instalments (eg one day per week), while continuing your studies.

For further information, please visit the UWAS web page. 

Apply by 29 June for first intake 2015–16.
