Work Experience

Unfortunately, RAF Shawbury will not be offering a week of work experience to any students in 2017. Instead, there will be up to 3 opportunities in summer 2017 for a Careers Visit at RAF Shawbury. On these days, a small group of young people will visit the Station to view several aspects of working life in the RAF. Spaces are however limited and as such anyone interested should fill in the application form and email it to SHY-YALO@mod.uk. No overnight accommodation will be available, and the day will likely run from 0900-1600.

It is strongly recommended that the child wishing to attend the visit is responsible for filling out the documentation to ensure they are fully engaged with the process.
