Taking on a student for work experience can have significant benefits for your business as well as for the student. Work experience students have an existing level of industry-related knowledge from their vocational studies and can provide very useful additional capacity on projects and tasks. They often bring fresh ideas and approaches which employers may not have previously considered, and skills in areas such as social media which can deliver a real business benefit.
Managing and supporting a work experience student can also be a useful opportunity within the business for staff wanting to take on a supervisory role in the future.
Industry placements are an excellent way of increasing your connection to the way the future workforce in your sector is educated, as well as giving you access to a stream of future talent. Our students who have done a successful work placement are frequently asked to continue the placement over a longer period, fitting in with the demands of their course, and ultimately to take on a permanent role with their placement provider at the end of their course.
We organise placements for students across our diverse range of subject areas. If you are interested in taking on a work placement student, just fill in our Enquiry form and we will get in touch to discuss your requirements.
