Work Placements enable a young person to spend time on an employer’s premises. Among other things, they will be able to observe the workplace, complete tasks under adult supervision and develop the skills and behaviours required in the workplace.
Work Placements can help young people become aware of careers they have not previously considered, enable them to develop relevant occupational skills and help instill the attitudes and behaviours expected at work.
We are in particular need of employers who can offer work placements in the following areas:
- Hair and Beauty
- Creative industries
If you would like to offer a work experience placement to one of our students please contact our dedicated Work Placement team on 0115 838 0972 or email email@example.com
