What can I expect?
Every work experience placement is different, but they’re all designed to give you the opportunity to make the most of your time with them whilst also fitting around your sessions with us.
Placements could last anything from a couple of hours per day to a number of weeks depending on what it is you hope to achieve. We will assist you to find a suitable placement at a location which is realistic for you to get to but you must be prepared to travel as placements and work experience cannot always be found on your doorstep.
The process is simple, a suitable employer is found, we check whether or not it is safe for you to attend, an initial meeting will be arranged for you to meet with the employer either on your own or with your Liaison Officer, we make sure you know how to get there and what days and times you will be attending and that is it… As simple as that!
Remember that work experience is unpaid and that it is a learning experience and not a job! However, it is your opportunity to demonstrate to a potential employer what skills and commitment you can bring to their business.
