Police Scotland will be hosting a week of work experience for one pupil from each high school in Renfrewshire during the week 30th September – 4th October 2019 from 0900 – 1600 hours each day.
The intention of the programme is to provide pupils with an insight into Police Scotland and how they work with others to serve local communities.
The programme will give pupils an insight into Divisional Departments such as Criminal Investigation, Safer Communities, Community Policing and many others.
The programme is open to pupils in 4th, 5th or 6th year who have a keen interest in securing a future role with Police Scotland. Interested pupils must submit an application form to Police Scotland who will then decide on the most suitable candidate. The closing date for applications is Friday 6th September.
If you are interested in this fantastic, fun filled opportunity see Mrs Penman for more information and an application form.
