Attention: Head of Careers - Work Experience Opportunities

I am writing to introduce The Student Ladder to you. This is an information website for students and can be found at:

The Student Ladder is one of the most popular sites for 15-18 year old students. You will find:

  • Work experience opportunities across most industry sectors
  • Hospitals that provide work experience for would be medical students
  • Paid Gap Year placements
  • Over 70 school leaver programmes for bright 18 year olds who may decide not to go to university
  • Careers advice  - an explanation of over 60 different roles as well as the best approach for some of the most popular career choices
  • Application advice including personal statements and interviews
  • Advice about A level and degree choices 
  • Advice about applying to US universities
  • Companies offering study/work and sponsorship options

There is no cost and no need to register. 

In addition, the site also provides information on 1000's of internships, placements and graduate jobs for 1st, 2nd, penultimate and final year university students and graduates.

Perhaps you could share the site with your students.

We would also be delighted for any feedback and any additions to the site that you and your students would find useful.
