APP Employer Insight Programmes are for students anywhere in the UK outside of London who would like an insight into a specific sector with a top employer from that field. Please note, if government guidelines allow, the work experience element could involve a face to face residential in London (or Middlesbrough in the case of the Medicine Insight) and students will receive a mentor from the employer partner, skills development workshops and university application support and guidance.
If government guidance does not allow the insight to take place in person, virtual support will be provided. Residential employer insights offer students a practical insight into the employer or sector during the day, with skills sessions, university application support and fun activities in the evenings and weekend. All expenses – travel, accommodation, and meals are covered and organised by the SMF.

Often, major firms and opportunities are situated within London, putting those in the rest of the UK at a disadvantage accessing similar opportunities. Our Employer Insight Programmes are specifically designed to support ambitious young people living outside of the capital to gain valuable work experience and to improve their soft skills.
Here at the SMF we are proud that the majority of our students go on to the top universities in the UK and undertake experiences and opportunities with us that help them gain employment in prestigious organisations.
