For some years UVHS and Siemens Tronic have worked together to provide work placements for two year 12 students during the Summer holidays.
The placements last 4 weeks during which time students gain invaluable experience of working in an engineering environment and carrying out a research and development project with the guidance of expert engineers.
In the past the students involved have also been awarded coveted Gold Crest awards and some have gone on to win prizes at regional and national engineering events.
The question of receiving any payment for the placement is under discussion but you would primarily take this opportunity for the experience, not for financial gain.
Anybody who is interested must see Mr Thompson BEFORE THE END OF THE DAY ON THURSDAY 3RD APRIL.
