Dream Placement 2022

We’re delighted to announce that Dream Placement Applications are now open for 2022! Please fill in the form at the bottom of the page to apply. You can find a link to download a PDF version to practise your answers below.

Closing date is Monday 25th October 2021.

In order to be eligible for a Dream Placement you must:

  • Live in Cumbria or be in full-time education in Cumbria
  • Be aged between 16 and 18 on 9th December 2021

A note before you start:
Companies would like to receive applications from as diverse a group of students as possible, this is your opportunity to tell us about your qualities, talents and achievements in all aspects of life, not just academic. Think about examples you could share from your creative, sporting, family and community life.
The companies which are offering Dream Placements will decide who they want to interview at the Selection Event. This application therefore offers you the opportunity to grab the attention of any company you are particularly interested in by mentioning them and explaining why you would be a good fit for them. Equally, if you are open to opportunities from any of the participating companies then that is fine too, you do not have to mention any particular companies.

Next steps after form completion:
You will receive an email confirming that your application has been received. If you do not receive this email within seven days of submitting your application please email nicola.woolley@cforlp.org.uk
After the closing date your application will go through a longlisting process. Companies offering placements will then choose which students they want to interview at the Selection Event. You will be informed whether or not you have been shortlisted in November.
