Sixth form students in Highbridge have been getting a taste of life in the workplace.
Year 12 students took part in King Alfred School’s annual internship week, which aims to offer teenagers an insight into what to expect from potential careers.
Students earned placements at some top companies across the country, including Rolls Royce in Bristol and Cardiff’s National Museum of Wales.
Some lucky students were also given places at SHH Chartered Architecture and Interior Design Practice, Queen’s Park Rangers Football Club, and London-based Peter Millard & Partners art consultants.
A school spokesman said: “Highlights of placements across the region included Somewhere House Rehabilitation Centre in Burnham, Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Trust and local primary schools such as St Andrew’s and Churchfield.”
The internship was held to give students a chance to work on their employability skills in preparation for apprenticeships, university placements and work.
