Most employers say that young people don’t have enough experience to get them a job. However through the Work Experience Programme, we can provide the opportunity to gain some experience while preparing for going into the working world and also help to think about career plans.
Placements can be offered for one afternoon per week up to full-time, any time during the academic year, and can be with a huge variety of employers in a wide variety of industries.
Placements may not always be available in the industry of choice but all placements will provide the opportunity to gain valuable skills and experience in the world of work.
