Work Experience

We run a competitive work experience scheme, where each year a number of our students spend time in a working environment in Prague or in London. Previous students have experienced the world of work in places as diverse as the House of Commons, Chatham House, the Orange Tree Theatre, a GP’s surgery, and legal and investment firms in London, to blue chip companies such as Deloitte and local NGOs in Prague. All this puts our students in the best possible position to achieve a fulfilling career in the future.

Our London Work Experience Programme is now in its 13th year. It is run by the English College Foundation, the charity that set up and still supports the English College in Prague. It gives Year 6 students the opportunity to spend October half-term in London, on a placement in a field in which they are considering making a career. We are very grateful to our Chairman of Governors, Ann Lewis, who coordinates the programme and to all our supporters in the UK who provide the placements and accommodation.
