Due to COVID-19, we are currently unable to support with work experience placements. It is our hope that we will be able to offer work experience placements from January 2022, but we will continue to review the situation in line with Government guidance.
We recognise that people require as much support as possible at this current time to help them enter the job market, and as a college, we continue to work with students on essential employability skills at this time.
Getting the chance to showcase your skills is hugely important for all our young learners and we appreciate the ongoing support we have from hundreds of local employers who give the next generation a taste of their chosen career.
What are the benefits of offering work experience?
There are plenty of benefits for employers that choose to open their doors to our students.
Work experience placements give you the opportunity to:
- Develop a recruitment pipeline for apprentices or full-time employees.
- Offer a mentor role to a current employee who is showing management potential.
- ‘Try before you buy', with a view to offering employment or apprenticeships in your organisation in the future.
- Do your bit to shape the workforce of the future.
How do I get involved?
We would love even more local employers to get involved and give students the chance to shine – this is your chance to be an industry leader and act as a role model to a new generation of workers.
Even if you can’t offer a role in your company, you could help with mock interviews to develop students’ employability skills or give a careers talk or video about your industry.
