What sort of things can students do at Eden?
The Eden Project offers exciting work experience placements in many areas.

What happens during the week?
Each opportunity is for a week-long placement and will give you a fantastic insight into life at Eden and the world of work. You will spend time working with the team in your chosen area to find out more about how their jobs contribute to the aims of Eden Project. During the week your supervisor will also set you a site-wide fact-finding mission on which you will feedback at the end of the week.
When does it take place?
Work experience weeks always take place in the spring and summer – chosen to coincide with the dates that secondary schools typically arrange Year 10 work experience.
