Employer Engagement Opportunities
There are many different ways you can engage with future talent at Nottingham College from coming into college to share your own story to setting live employer briefs for our students to support your business needs all with the needs of our students and future employment opportunities in mind.
We are actively looking for quality employers and industry partners to work with on the following initiatives:
All our Level 2 and 3 students are required to complete a minimum of 30 hours work experience alongside their qualification to enable them to become work ready.
Employers can advertise to, interview and recruit our students, free of charge to identify future talent and support student’s skill development aligned to their business.
Our T Level students and selected Level 2 and 3 students are required to complete 315 hours of work experience with one or more employers alongside their qualification.
Our partners are offered the chance to promote their business, identify talent and induct students into their industry in a flexible way that adapts and suits the needs of their business.
Students set targets to aim for during their extended placement, to develop relevant technical and employability skills. Employers often off-set this when recruiting potential candidates into their business when they complete their course saving the cost of induction.
Nottingham College is committed to developing the knowledge, skills and behaviours the local economy require. We are looking to work with industry to inform us, advise us and help shape the content of our future units and qualifications.
We believe that by working together, we can meet the needs of an ever-changing world of work and enable the next work force of our great city to become Future Ready
We are looking for employers to set projects or briefs for our students. Setting projects or briefs allows you to see a wide variety of student work applied specifically to your business priorities and gives our students real world experience of working towards real goals with real deadlines to manage, preparing them for both your business and the world of work.
We are looking for inspirational industry partners to come and speak to our students, virtually or face to face to connect with our students, share their journeys, experiences and stories. Making connections with our students puts you and your business in front of their minds and gives you the opportunity to promote your business and even recruit. Our students gain an insight into industry, inspiration and become aware.
Visits to local, national and international businesses all add into our student’s employability journey. Nottingham College would love the chance to bring students along to your site to see in person how you operate, meet your team and learn more about what you do.
We are looking for employers who wish to promote your business to our students, bring their industry into focus for student next steps and become part of our students consideration for their future employment opportunities.
We are looking to continue our work with employers to ask the key questions around getting into and working within your industry. Our employer Q&A videos give you a chance to tell your story in a relaxed and structured way.
We do the questions, the recording and the edit – you just answer the questions, share your experiences and offer any advice and guidance that could support our students into your industry. A great chance to promote yourself and business in the technological age!
