I have a bright and able 17 year old who is planning on reading geography at university and would like a week's relevant work experience at the start of September. Something like town planning, research, housing or transport would be ideal. Sadly we know noone with these credentials who could help. Could you? Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Was going to suggest UK Parliament who runs an amazing work experience scheme but unfortunately, applications are closed for this year. Something to think about for next year. The scheme usually opens for applications in January and you can apply twice, once for House of Commons and once for House of Lords.

Thank you. Any other suggestions appreciated.

transport - maybe try Sustrans, a charity with a London base in Farringdon?
there are several town planning consultancies in London, plus councils have these departments?

Sorry I don't have any contacts though.

Like Townley says, maybe our local Southwark Council could help.

The council is an obvious place - also could try the GLA/mayor’s office, or a consultancy like Arup
