Dream Placement in a Nutshell

Step 1 — Applications

Local students aged 16-18* apply to the Centre for Leadership Performance using the entry form on this website. CfLP reviews the applications and makes a short-list of students who will be invited to attend a selection event.

* Live in Cumbria and will be aged between 16 to 18 on December 7, 2019.

Step 2 — Selection Event

The selection event is the first time that students and employers come together. During this day there are various activities, including speed-interviewing, which will help to match the students' skills and aptitudes to the various employers. Although there is no guarantee that every shortlisted student will be placed with a host company, we work hard to place as many students as possible. The successful students are then allocated to the host companies and all are invited to the development day.

Step 4 — Placement Week

The Dream Placement takes place — the exact programme of the week varies depending on the type of host company and the interest of the student but all will experience leadership in action and learn what Cumbria's employers have to offer for capable and ambitious young people.
