Work experience

For 2020, we are only offering work experience placements for those who attend a WORKS school, in particular Bedminster Down and Oasis Academy John Williams. We have six placements available based at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery, which will include 1 day in the week to be spent at the Bottleyard studios.

The work experience week will include:

  • Interview and application advice
  • A careers meeting and next-steps discussion
  • An apprenticeships session with the Apprenticeships Manager – where there is a platform to discuss live apprenticeship opportunities
  • A real work challenge which can involve training on social media, writing a blog that may be published on the website, or a task that is directly related to the objectives of the team.

Our commitment to work experience means that anyone who completes a work experience placement at Bristol City Council, and then applies for an apprenticeship and meets the essential criteria, is guaranteed an interview.

If you do attend those schools and are interested in a work experience placement, please email Bristol WORKS and the team will send you an application form.
