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 during the summer term, 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.

We are always looking for good quality Work Experience placements for our students.

There is no financial incentive in taking on work experience placements. However, by offering a Work Experience placement, you will be doing your bit to shape the workforce of the future.

If there is an employee within your organisation who is showing management potential, they may benefit from the opportunity to mentor a student on placement.

You could also use work experience as an opportunity to 'try before you buy', with a view to offering employment/apprenticeships in the future.
