Science & Technology Facilities Council: Work Experience Programme
The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) is one of Europe’s largest research organisations supporting scientists and engineers and running experiments around the UK and world-wide. 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.
Daresbury Laboratory (DL), Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) and UK Astronomy Technology Centre (UK ATC) offer work experience placements to Year 10, 11, 12 and 13 students each year, many from local schools and around the country. As far as possible they are placed depending on their interests indicated on the application form.
For the summer 2022 programme, the DL and RAL work experience teams will be joining up to deliver online work experience provision for young people.
Applications will open on the 28th of January 2022 and close on the 7th of March 2022.
A webinar is also available here.
