Work Experience / Placement
The Kent Sport and Physical Activity service receives many requests from people looking to undertake work experience or placements within the service.
Any enquiries for work placements must go through Kent County Council, where you will find details of the types of placements which can be offered and the application form.
We also suggest that those looking for work experience get in touch with the Sports Development unit in their local area, who may be able to offer opportunities. It is important to note that work experience cannot be guaranteed.
