Work Experience UK! (Winchester only)

You can take part in our popular Work Experience scheme if you come to study for 3 hours per day for two weeks (minimum) and are aged 16-35. We will find you a part-time (usually afternoon) job in which you will have the opportunity to improve your English fluency, get to know more English people and gain valuable experience. The work is unpaid.

We offer 2 types of Work Experience: General and Specialist

Both include our “mentoring” service, whereby our Work Experience Coordinator spends time with you discussing your placement and resolving problems by speaking directly to the person responsible for you at the place of work. We will need your CV in English plus a photo at least 3 weeks before arrival before we can confirm the work experience. A phone or email interview may also be requested.

We charge an administration fee for the Work Experience service:

£ 200 Work Experience (General) 1 – 2 weeks

£ 300 Work Experience (General) 3+ weeks

£ 350 Work Experience (Specialist) 1 – 2 weeks

£ 450 Work Experience (Specialist) 3+ weeks

Please note: This comes on top of your tuition fee with us for our Full Immesion English classes (minimum stay is 3 weeks!)
