Camden teams up with leading tech companies to deliver online work experience for the borough’s students

Camden Council, alongside high-profile organisations such as Google, Skanska and the Francis Crick Institute, have developed a virtual programme giving students the opportunity to gain valuable work experience during lockdown.

250 local students in Years 11, 12 and 13 are taking part in a number of online placements in June and July to gain the skills and confidence needed to help them in a future career.
