Virtual Work Experience

We are excited to be working with a number of companies to provide real life virtual work experience in a range of different fields.   This is a great opportunity to experience what your working life could be in these businesses.  We will continue to update this with new and different companies so that pupils can experience a wide range of different employers and companies.
