Hi , my name is Elise , I’m currently a 17 year old sixth form student looking to study motorsport engineering or become an apprentice in 2022. I discovered this site a while back but have decided to join now as I start my journey in applying for courses etc. I’m hoping to find some work experience that will aid me in my applications. If anyone knows of any opportunities, whether that be virtual shadowing or even just the chance to visit an office or team base. I am also interested in any opportunities in the journalism and commentary field, reporting on action as it happens (much to my families annoyance whilst we’re watching races ) and writing articles is something I really enjoy, but I don’t study an English A level, so journalism degree options are limited for me , so if I can gain experience independently then it’s something I would love to pursue alongside engineering.
The main issue I have encountered so far is that universities recommend having some work experience, but most programs I can find are aimed at post graduate students.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
thanks , Elise.
