The 'my work experience week' was an event run by the Take Your Place team to introduce pre-16 school pupils to a range of useful work experience concepts. The sessions from the week have been recorded so they can be viewed at your own pace. Activities and documents mentioned in the sessions can be accessed in the downloads section at the bottom of this page.
