Parents, teachers and careers advisors FAQs
How long is the work experience placement?
Depending on the area of the business, we can accommodate placements for either one or two weeks at a time.
How do you keep young people safe on site?
Health and Safety is paramount for everyone on site at HYDAC, but especially for young people. For that reason Risk Assessments are carried out with every young person before we allow them to start work. Young people will be accompanied at all times while in the working environment, particularly with shop floor placements.
Is it possible for a young person to have Work Experience in more than one department?
Yes. We appreciate some young people may not yet have a clear idea of what they’d like to do when they leave school. If you have a young person that would like to gain experience in more than one department that’s absolutely fine, just add the details to the application form and we’ll try our best to accommodate.
