Work experience at Jaguar Land Rover Around 400, 15-18 year old students take part in the work experience programme each year, giving them the opportunity to learn about careers in engineering, manufacturing and business related subjects. I have a keen interest in design and so sent an application for Jaguar Land Rovers design and testing plant in Coventry. Due to the high demand the application stage is only open for a short period (September to October). The work experience placement is for 1 week in July in which I work in many roles at the plant, from the initial design ideas right to the final testing of the cars before they reach the market to give me a broad understanding of what . goes on at the centre.

Where and for how long? Kirara-hama, Yamaguchi City, on camp - 10 days Tokyo - 1 week Japanese persons home (not sure where)- 3 days Yamaguchi City Tokyo Northern General Hospital Hand Clinic For my work experience I worked with multiple different surgeons in the Hand Clinic ward. This involved sitting in on consultations and following doctors

round the hospital, talking to different patients and gaining an insight on what it would be like to work in the hospital. It also gave me a chance to talk to other doctors and nurses, as well as the patients, in order to gain a second hand opinion on what its like working in the hospital as well as training at University.
