Access work experience

In light of the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak we have taken the decision to temporarily suspend work experience offered through LifeSkills.

We hope you will understand that our priority must be to protect the health and wellbeing of students. We will continue to monitor the situation and will update this page as soon as we have a further update.

Please email us at barclayslifeskills@barclays.com so that we can take your details and contact you once the system is up and running again. Please note that once placements become available again, you will need to allow 4-6 weeks for your teacher to organise them.

In the meantime, you can still access Virtual Work Experience, an online interactive activity where you can experience the first day of work experience.

The more you learn, the more you earn

We regularly add point-scoring opportunities to the site, giving you the chance to keep earning more points.
