Work experience is an increasingly important step towards getting the job you want - enabling you to find a career you'll enjoy, build on your CV and improve your skills in a real working environment.

That's why we've teamed up with local employers to bring you GAP work experiences: a fresh approach to giving you what it takes to land a great first job.

You'll target the real skills you need for success in ways which suit you and your work experience employer, meaning you'll be busy every time you go to work and can expect to be completely involved in projects and tasks.

Whether you have your sights set on a particular industry, want to keep your options open or are looking to improve particular skills, we want to line you up with the right opportunity. All our students have access to our GAP website, where you can find our full range of opportunities.

Work experience should be an adventure wherever you go, and we’re here to help you get as much as possible out of your time so that you’ll have a great story to tell employers at interview for that all-important first job!
