Ever thought about joining the Army?  Hear from serving soldiers about what it’s like to learn skills, take on initiative tests, watch demonstrations and take part in military lessons. Explore the latest Army kit and equipment. Ask questions about travelling the world, having everyday adventures, and pushing yourself to do things you never thought possible.

Join our virtual work experience event for your chance to experience first-hand what it’s like to be in the Army.  We'll demonstrate Army fitness standards, talk to you about the science behind rations, show you how to pack a Bergen and share with you many other Military lessons during the session!  You'll also have the chance to speak to serving soldiers about Army life and the many roles available. Available for students from Yr 10 upwards.

Springpod are offering Virtual Work Experience Programmes and Insight Days that are free for students and can be completed at times that suit them - receiving a certificate straight from the employer at the end for use in CVs, Personal Statements and future interviews. They all feature live interaction that allow students to ask any burning questions directly to the experts themselves and work/ tasks will also be set and marked upon completion. These are vital to help gain career knowledge and experience.

Take a look at the list of upcoming opportunities for 2021 (many of which will be closing soon!) with top employers such as Vodafone, Nestle, The NHS, Chartered Institute of Marketing and BT, by clicking here.
