Active4Today are committed to enable children, young people and adults to learn and be ready for work. As part of this, we are able to offer work experience placements. Depending on your personal preferences, we endeavour to offer a holistic placement that encompasses all aspects of the business. Please see below an example timetable for a week's work experience at Newark Sports and Fitness Centre.
Preference will be given to applicants who:
- Live within the Newark and Sherwood District
- Attend a school/college within the Newark and Sherwood District
- Show a genuine interest in the leisure/sport industry
In addition to the placement, any individual wanting to take part in work experience would also be required to sign up to the volunteering scheme VISPA. Volunteering is not only the lifeblood of local sport and leisure; it is also a fantastic opportunity for a person to demonstrate the skills and attributes necessary to be successful at gaining employment within this sector.
If you would like to register your interest in work experience please fill out this form.
Following completion of this form the Sports Development team will contact you. The process in securing a work experience placement usually takes a few weeks, so please so this within plenty of time.
