Applications for GSK’s Work Experience for GCSE students at Barnard Castle are now open and therefore I would be grateful if you could make your students aware.
30th June  – 3rd July 2020
The GCSE work experience week is for year 11 students following completion of their GCSEs.
During this 3½  day programme, students will take part in various simulated exercises and activities, meet and hear from subject matter experts and tour the site to learn more about the healthcare industry, GSK and their career options.  Students will also receive an Industrial Cadet Award as part of the programme.
There will also be the opportunity to find out about our Apprenticeship Scheme.
There are a limited number of places available and therefore we can’t guarantee that all students who apply will be offered a place, it is a competitive process based on student application forms. We are unable to provide assistance with food, travel or accommodation and students will need to be available for the full programme. Timings will be approx. 9.00 – 17.00 Tuesday to Thursday and 9.00 – 12.30 Friday.
Applications close on 3rd April 2020 and also require a teacher reference.  We have an online application form for both the student and teachers.
Students can apply online and find out more here: website states 3 days and closing date of May, but it is 3.5 days and closing date is April.
Although we are a Pharmaceutical Company, there are many and varied roles on site for which you do not need to be a scientist and therefore we welcome applications from all students.
Please be aware that we are fully intending at this stage to run this programme, but the event may be cancelled if we are advised to, due to the Coronavirus situation.
Thank you.
