3M Bespoke Work Experience Programme

“ We decided to implement a bespoke work experience programme to enable students to gain a real insight into how 3M applies its science and innovative technologies to life” said Rosalind Smith, communications manager. “By focusing on a small number of highly motivated students, we were able to maximise the educational and life skills benefit of the week. Compared with previous, ad-hoc placement opportunities, this defined programme has made it much easier to assess its value to both the students and 3M.”

“Our employees who supervised the students said they found it a rewarding personal development opportunity, and the programme is perfectly aligned with our community objectives of encouraging young people’s interest in STEM careers and inspiring the scientists and engineers of the future.”

“We were very impressed with the positive engagement shown by the students, who all agreed that it had been a valuable and enjoyable week which opened their eyes to different career paths and opportunities.”
