Work Experience at Axe Valley Vets

** Please note the June 2016 Kings Of Wessex placement has been filled **


With many employers now opting not to take part in work experience for school students, we are often inundated with requests from school students for work placements. Students under the age of 16 years will only be accepted  for work experience as part of the schools work experience programme.

We believe that allowing students to experience the "world of work", gives them an opportunity to experience first hand what they feel is to be their chosen career path. This in turn often encourages them to study harder for their GCSE examinations and in some cases can lead to further placements when either studying for their A-Level examinations or applying for nurse training placements.

All school work experience takes place at our main branch in Blackford, where students experience all aspects of veterinary practice by observing our clinical staff. Our aim is to ensure each student is able to experience as much as is possible, whilst ensuring their safety.

Students wanting to apply for a placement at Axe Valley for there work experience will need to complete the application form and submit this with a hand written covering letter.
