Summer work experience with the Isle of Man Constabulary!
Every year students can apply for a summer work experience programme with the Isle of Man Constabulary, aimed at year 10 students (Age 15-16) from any high school across the Island.

Whilst on their placement students will be expected to report to the Police Headquarters on Glencutchery Road in Douglas from 9am, finishing work at 3.30pm each day.
PC Mike Griffiths, supervisor of the programmes, said this about the up-coming opportunity:
"All students aged 15-16 interested in finding out more about police work are welcome to apply, this programme is a great opportunity to get a real feel for police work and the huge range of roles that make up the constabulary. This experience can not only help to shape your career, but the work experience will help to develop employability skills such as confidence and effective communication. Ultimately, we want to ensure we repeatedly engage with students throughout their education, with in-school engagement sessions, work experience and via our cadet programme – doing all we can to ensure a great future workforce of the Isle of Man Constabulary."
