For the obligatory online workshops, participants will have at least two different dates to choose from for each workshop. This allows participants a degree of flexibility for managing other summer commitments that they may have. Furthermore, participants will have the option to change the assigned date of their in-field Job Shadowing Day experience if their parent/guardian requests this in writing and can provide a compelling reason for a change in assignment date to be actioned.
