Virtual Work Experience
Virtual work experience (sometimes called online, remote or digital work experience) gives young people a chance to gain experience in the workplace, develop their skills, boost their employability and explore new industries and job roles.
At Harris we give students the opportunity take part in work experience during a dedicated week in Year 10. Virtual work experience is an option for students who are unable to find a physical placement or would like access to companies that are not local or do not offer physical placements.
You can also access virtual work experience in your school holidays or spare time to gain skills and boost your CV.
