Work experience

The University of Sheffield takes its public and social responsibility seriously. We are committed to making the world a better place.

This approach is embedded in everything we do, from partnerships with local and global organisations to our research and teaching. As a University department, the ELTC shares this commitment.

One way it does so is by providing young people in the Sheffield region with learning opportunities, and practical experience, which aim to equip them for their future working life.

Staff at the ELTC undertake a range of roles which are reflected in the work experience placements we offer. Placements are available in three areas of the department: administration, teaching and technology.

Our work experience placements are designed to be informative and motivating, providing hands-on experience and active engagement, and an example timetable for a week long placement can be viewed here.

Placements can only be accommodated in certain weeks of the year and we may have to limit the number of placements in any week because of the practical nature of our placements and the nature of the ELTC business. 

To apply for a placement at the ELTC please complete our application form below with as much information as possible. We cannot guarantee that everyone will get a placement, but we will try to accommodate as many people as we can.

Applications for our work experience placements in 2023 are now closed.

Work experience placements for 2024 will be available between 1 March and 31 August 2024, and applications will open for these in early 2024.

We can only arrange internships to current students and recent graduates of The University of Sheffield through the University's internship programme.
