Some of the country’s biggest businesses are welcoming work experience students from North Somerset Enterprise and Technology College (NSETC).

Year 10 and 12 students from NSETC, based at Weston College’s South West Skills campus in Locking Road, have secured one-week placements with the likes of Airbus and Rolls Royce.

The NSETC is a free school for teens aged between 14 and 19 which aims to help students move from study to work, using links with the UK’s biggest employers.

Megan Monkton, Jacob Flavell, Connor Pettett, Daniel Sturman and Joshua Ball all secured placements at Airbus, while Ellie Davey got a placement at Rolls Royce.

Emma Cox, business development coordinator at NSETC, said: “We are so proud that so many of our students have achieved the opportunity to have their work experience at Airbus.
