Do West Midlands Police offer work experience?

No, we don’t offer work experience placements but we do arrange ‘Force Insight Days’.

Force Insight Days

This is a programme where pupils and students from schools and colleges from across the West Midlands have a unique opportunity to gain an insight into the different departments that make up our organisation.

The sessions are held at Lloyd House, our headquarters based in Birmingham city centre. Each placement is held within a classroom based environment and accommodates up to 15 pupils, with sessions held twice a month.

There is not a strict criteria for eligibility onto the insight days except for attendees being part of a secondary school or college which is located in the West Midlands region.

The day aims to inspire the future generation who may be interested in pursuing a career in one of our police officer or police staff roles.


If this sounds like something that you would be interested in please talk to someone at your school who can then fill out the short form below.


If you are a member of staff from a school in the West Midlands and believe your school would be benefit from our Insight Days, please complete the short form below.
