Every year we host a number of different young people from secondary schools and universities across Cumbria for a period of work experience.

Due to the high volume of workload faced by our staff, those interested in applying for a placement here will need to contact our youth manager to arrange an informal interview in person before a decision is made in agreeing to take them on.

Please email with initial contact requests to be followed up by a phone call.

Please understand we will only accept requests for placements from the participants themselves as part of this process.

We are happy to support additional needs but parents & guardians are otherwise advised not to contact us on the young persons behalf.
