Work Experience NC4M

Posted by: Tiernan_R - Posted: March 14, 2021

Hi, I am currently studying at the National College For Motorsport and I’m looking for work experience to learn about the environment and complete my course (20 hours required). I am hoping after this is complete I can move onto an apprenticeship within a team. I am 16 and based in Bournemouth and am willing to travel far.

Thank you.

Hi Tieran,

Welcome to our network again, we did comment on your original post back in February did you not see this?

Anyway here’s what we had to say:

We’re seeing an increasing number of students from the National College for Motorsport which is great!

We look forward to seeing you in and amongst the forums and supporting you in your career aims. You like many others are looking to secure work experience which is crucial to your development, your enthusiasm is shining through with is great – that alone will put you on the right path to success!

So let’s get started, can you tell us what course you are studying for example (Engineering Technology (Motorsport) EAL Level 2 Diploma).

We also see that you have no preference which area you gain experience in but we really do have to narrow down what it is you are interested in, now is the time to start focussing your energy on working out what it is you ultimately want to do within the industry, and start moulding yourself so that you can achieve it. We have to act on this now so you get the best start you can; we ask this now because we see you have no details completed on your profile.

Also, can we ask why you only have to complete 20 hours of work experience? Most student we talk to have to do a minimum of 30 hours for example.

Top Tip:

Complete a full Student Motorsport profile (with as much detail as possible) so you get the most out of our network. It’s also nice to be able to ‘put a face to your name’. We’re interested in taking a look at your educational background, your interests and of course, see what your aims are, and there are future employers out there looking to do the same.

If you have a completed profile it speaks volumes about you, it’s not just about the posts you create or questions you ask, people want to see who and what type of person creates them.
