Available Between

Calling all YEAR 10 Students…

Do you love fashion?

Are you curious how we create, source and manufacture our clothing, footwear and accessory collections? Are you interested in challenges we face to produce affordable, sustainable, quality products? Have you been looking for work experience that’s fun, creative and where you can get stuck in? Have to wanted to come to Tesco head office for work experience but thought you couldn’t attend as you don’t live near enough to our Welwyn Garden City offices? The great news is that for the first time ever Tesco is offering you the opportunity to join our virtual – Tesco F&F Challenge work experience.

We welcome everyone to apply and you don’t need to have the most creative mind to take part. Open to students in Year 10, our work experience programme will be run online with a Fashion project to complete which can be done at your own pace. You will be able to choose from projects such as:

How to choose which country to manufacture your garments. Learning about skills, costs, lead times and sustainability.

Making the right sustainable choices for customers. Learn about environmental impacts of fashion and how Tesco makes a positive impact. Then you decide on the decisions you will need to make to offer the customer an affordable & sustainable choice.

Creating your own social media advert for F&F (sustainable, affordable, quality products) and presenting your ideas back to our panel of judges. In addition, you will hear from our Food Love Story team who create our campaigns and see first-hand what it’s like to work in a creative role and the skills that are needed.

We will help you to complete your project and also improve your employability skills with live innovation and presentation workshops.

So why not take a look inside the world of Tesco and take on our F&F fashion challenge!
