Now more than ever, we recognise that young people require as much support as possible to help them enter the job market. As a college, we remain committed to working with our students on essential employability skills during this time.
What are the benefits of offering work experience?
There are lots 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.
- Help 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.
If you are unable to offer a role within your company, you could support our students with mock interviews to develop students’ employability skills or give a talk about your industry.
