Offering Work Experience

  • Is recruitment a problem for your business?
  • Do you find it difficult to find and retain good staff?
  • Do you worry about the future of skills in your industry?

If you have answered yes to any of the questions above, then working with education may offer you the opportunity to address these issues long term. Providing young people with access, knowledge and experience of the world of work allows young people to develop skills that are valued by employers. Young people will enter the workforce with more relevant skills and an understanding of work.

As an employer, working with young people, and schools can help:

  • Ensure a better prepared, more knowledgeable young person as an employee
  • you gain a more effective way to recruit for the future
  • with potential marketing and PR opportunities
  • provide your company with fresh thinking that may help with company problems
  • young people develop work-relevant skills and an understanding of how businesses operate.
