What can 12 to 14-year-olds do to get work experience?

It may seem as though 12 to 14-year-olds have fewer opportunities to gain work experience than older children, but there are still plenty of options to help your child get ahead. For instance, you can:

  • Contact relevant companies to see if they’ll allow your child to shadow an employee or help with any general work for a few days
  • Try and build a network of people working in the industry for insights and ad hoc opportunities
  • Consider whether you have any friends and family in the desired industry and see if they can help 
  • Attend relevant events related and keep up-to-date with industry news
  • Enrol on an InvestIN programme. We offer a range of unique work experience programmes, ranging from investment banking, computer science and medicine to law and engineering
What are the benefits of work experience for 15 to 18 year-olds?

At ages 12 to 14, children are still a few years off full time work. However, work experience can prove to be a formative event in a child’s life, with benefits that reach far beyond future employability. These include:

  • Discovering what they like: Gaining work experience will help children discover what they like and don’t like, supporting them in future decisions related to potential degrees and careers
  • Growing in confidence: Children’s confidence will grow as they receive coaching from specialists, complete industry tasks and interact with other like-minded students
  • Improved employability: Having work experience will look good on a CV, demonstrating an early desire to work in the field and improving future employability
  • Developing key skills: Students will gain key professional skills that will often be transferable to other areas of life
  • Building networks: Making connections with people involved in the industry will open doors in the future
  • Support university applications: Completing work experience in a field related to your desired university course will help you stand out from the crowd
