Work Inspiration

Interested in a Work Inspiration Placement? Find out more here

Thank you for your interest in a work inspiration placement within our surgery. Due to the large number of students that approach us for work inspiration we will prioritise students who show a genuine interest and sufficient academic ability to enter the veterinary profession (i.e. you must be predicted at least five 4-9 grades at GCSE including Maths, English and a Science) and we can only offer a maximum placement period of up to two weeks.

We would prefer to only have one student at a time in the surgery and we will require you to be over the age of 15 years at the time of the placement.  Before applying please read the description of work inspiration activities to see if they interest you.

As competition is fierce, academically able post-GCSE students wishing to follow a career as a veterinary surgeon are also welcome to apply independently. They are recommended to build a portfolio of evidence to support their university application, which can be undertaken at the surgery.

Before a work inspiration placement can be arranged, the following procedure must be followed:

  • Complete a Work Inspiration application form and return to Melanie Watts, our work inspiration coordinator.
  • All applications will be acknowledged.
  • If you are a successful candidate we will contact you to arrange placement dates.
  • Confirmation of placement dates and guidelines will be sent to you prior to your placement, once you’ve read through them just sign and return your confirmation slip before the start of your placement.

Once again, thank you for your interest in our surgery, we look forward to receiving your completed application.
