At the Institute, we welcome young people undertaking work experience in our departments. If you would like to undertake a short work experience placement (normally of 1-2 weeks) at the CI, it is recommended that you identify a few departments that you would be interested in working within. One way that you can do this is to visit our departments’ websites and contact them directly to find out if they are able to offer you a placement.

Unfortunately the Institute is unable to arrange work experience placements for students who are below 14 years of age due to the hazardous nature of the work.

Once a placement is arranged, the student and the parent(s)/guardian(s) should read the health and safety risk assessment and details given about the placement prepared by the department.
