Work experience for schools

We can arrange work experience from year 10 onwards for individuals or whole year groups with varying needs. Placements may lead to employment, apprenticeships or internships.

We work with you to understand your students' needs. Our coordinators visit a member of staff from your school to find out how many students need work experience, and the type of placements they need.

We also meet each student one-to-one to find out their interests and the kind of work experience they want to do.

We understand every school has different needs and we work with you to make sure each need is met and you're happy with each student’s placement.

We can deal with a range of placement structures, including one-week blocks, one day a week, over a term or academic year - whatever fits in with the young person’s school life.

You'll know that all policies and procedures are met, including safeguarding and health. All our team are health and safety trained.
