Read What Previous Dream Placement Students Said

' I believe that Dream Placement was a strong contributing factor as to why I am now a Project Management Apprentice with the company. I now have the opportunity to gain a degree while being in a secure job that will allow me to progress through the company's hierarchy. I cannot thank CfLP enough for their advice, direction and knowledge throughout the period. This is an opportunity every teenager should grab with two hands. '
Florence Hanlon, Project Management Apprentice, Sellafield Ltd
Former Dream Placement winner

' I was fortunate enough to be offered a number of apprenticeships over summer from different companies and I have no doubt that Dream Placement helped with this. As soon as it is mentioned the people conducting the interview suddenly take much more notice and are keen to hear about it. You can tell the placement is held in high regard by employers, local and further afield. '
Callum Foster, Cockermouth school student, REACT Engineering

' It has made me more confident, as well as provided some valuable skills such as presentational skills and timekeeping skills that will be very useful for university. '
West Cumbria Catholic Sixth Form student, NSG

' Dream Placement has prepared me for being in similar situations later in life, being in interviews or being in a workplace. It has boosted my confidence in these areas. '
Millom School student, BAE Systems

' I've had a fantastic week with some really great people, thanks to everyone at CfLP for making that happen. The CN Group's absolutely wonderful. I've had a lot of interesting experiences so far and I'm really glad I applied for a Dream Placement. I know the other students who took part in Dream Placement will feel the same. '
Ashleigh Huddart, Dream Placement student, CN Group

' I would just like to say thank you very much for such a fascinating week at NNL. I found it extremely interesting and I have definitely achieved the goals which I had set on the preparation day. I feel very lucky to have experienced every part of last week and meeting very important members of NNL who have an extremely important role in the company and listening to their guidance to a career in science. It is called a dream placement for a reason and I was delighted to have experienced every part of it. '
Tom Wright, St Bees School, NNL Workington

' I knew I was interested in project management and the nuclear industry but I didn't know exactly what it involved. React designed the week to suit my interests and I have had a great opportunity that I would never have got if I hadn't entered the Dream Placement Scheme. I now know that I want to pursue a career in this industry and hope to keep in contact with everyone at React. '
Callum Foster, Cockermouth School, React Engineering

' My placement with CCF was absolutely brilliant; I was generally quite emotional on the Friday that I had to leave. '
Daniel Nixon, St Benedict's, NMP / Cumbria Community Foundation
