Science and Technology Facilities Council: Work Experience Opportunities
The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) is one of Europe’s largest research organisations supporting scientists and engineers world-wide. The STFC are offering students an amazing and interesting opportunity to take part in their work experience programme. If you love STEM, this is not to be missed and a fantastic chance to train in the field!
The STFC operates on four sites across the UK. Activities carried out cover a wide range of science, engineering and technology, including materials science, engineering and instrumentation, particle physics, space science, accelerator based technologies, information technology and computer science.
Inspiring young people and the wider public is one of the STFC’s main objectives. This is achieved through a focused programme of public engagement, promoting careers in science, engineering and technology to maintain the quality of the UK programme.
The Laboratories offer one or two week work experience placements to over 100 Year 10, 11, 12 and 13 students each year, many from local schools and around the country. Longer placements are available for Year 12 and Year 13 students over the summer. As far as possible they are placed depending on their interests indicated on the application form.
Closing date for applications is the 31st of December 2016.
