Offering work-based learning opportunities for our students is vital in helping them develop the skills needed to succeed in the world of work. It is also a great opportunity for organisations to engage with local students. Many of our students who have undertaken placements have gone on to secure employment with the organisations they worked in.
Whether you are looking to offer a placement or would like to come into college and talk to students about your sector, we are always keen to work with employers and our dedicated work experience team is on hand to guide you through the whole process.
You can offer student placements from as little as five to 45 days, depending on the sector you are in, what the student is studying and the skills you will find useful. If you’re not sure where to start, contact our work experience team. We can help you decide what you need and introduce you to suitable candidates.
Employers are often quoted as saying the employability skills they need are often lacking in young people when they hit the jobs market. You could help us change this by getting involved in our annual employability conference, employability weeks or curriculum design.
