Work Experience

We know how important it is for young people to gain an understanding of the working world and are keen to offer opportunities for them to gain first-hand experience.

Whilst there are only a few departments that can offer a safe and interesting work experience opportunity for school age or college students within the Council, we welcome applications for work experience, although places are limited.

Work experience requests should be submitted via a completed  Work Experience Application Form  linked here and returned to

It is important for the students themselves to apply in order for them to gain an understanding of the nature of the working world.

Departments that offer work experience are: Tamworth Castle Museum, Environmental Health, Housing, Democratic Services, Planning and Development, Community Safety Partnerships, Finance, Graphics.

The Council’s work experience policy can be found here.
