Whether you’re interested in sound engineering for the music industry, developing green technologies, creating software or designing buildings, STEM industries offer a huge range of career options. Getting work experience lets you see what these industries are really like to work in. It’s also a great way to show your proactivity and to demonstrate your drive and enthusiasm to future employers.
The STEM Experience
The STEM Experience brings together STEM employers and those interested in a STEM career. Employers offer work experience opportunities via The STEM Experience website. Anyone can search for relevant opportunities, regardless of age or educational status, and express an interest in them.
A traineeship is a course with work experience that gets you ready for work or an apprenticeship. It can last up to 6 months and help with English and maths is also available if you need it.
You can apply if you are:
• Eligible to work in England
• Unemployed and have little or no work experience
• Aged 16 to 24 and qualified below Level 3
You won’t be paid, but you may be given expenses for things like travel and meals.
