Work Experience

We know how important it is for our young people to get experience in the world of work as they chose their path in life. At the partnership we provide work experience placements for young people that attend a school within the London Borough of Merton. Due to a high demand, applicants will only be considered if they have previously volunteered at a partnership event or if they are part of the MSSP Leadership Academy. During their time with MSSP, the students will gain experience in various sporting capacities such as sports coaching, event organisation/delivery and sports leadership.

Please see our Work experience and intership page for Work Experience opportunities. 

Sport Internships

The Partnership provides a brilliant opportunity for some real grass roots development experience within school sport. Each academic year we recruit up to two new sports enthusiasts to join our team and provide sporting opportunities to the London Borough of Merton's school children.
