Work Experience

Our work experience offering currently provides an online work experience programme for young people aged 14-19 in the UK.

The next one available starts on Monday 23 October 2023, with a live session every day that week, plus online activities and chances to hear from Barclays colleagues and ask them questions. The deadline for applications is 19 October 2023. Young people can find out more here.

Students and educators also have access to a range of free activities to support with work experience to get an understanding of different organisations and industries and what employability skills are used.

Our Virtual Work Experience is a great place to start, providing an online interactive activity where they can experience the first day of work experience.

Students can also practise managing workplace challenges and use core transferable skills to deliver these challenges, then focus on the practical employability skills and use the CV Builder and even have a go on the Virtual interview practice tool.
