Work Experience

Provide work experience for young people.

We work with a variety of employers across London who provide placements for students to gain experience in their chosen field and develop practical skills which are hard to gain in the classroom.

Work experience is vital to young people as it provides them with real-life experiences within the workplace.

They will gain:

  • Experience in the workplace and insight into jobs and sectors that they have an interest in
  • Increased confidence, social and employability skills
  • Experience to build their CVs, gain networking opportunities and gain an understanding of how recruitment works
  • Opportunities to progress onto paid employment with the company
  • Gain skills from the on-the-job training which they may not get while studying.

For employers, offering work experience is beneficial for several reasons:

  • Young people offer fresh ideas and ways of thinking and can help with connecting with the next generation
  • Providing training and development helps improve management skills within the company
  • Young people are eager to learn and passionate about the workplace which can help provide a positive atmosphere for other staff
  • Take on more staff to support the growth of the business as well as allow for internal promotions and growth.
  • Allows recruitment opportunities to build pipelines and offer a wider range of talent and new team members.
  • Provides engagement with the local community, offering development, networking, and support to the local area allowing businesses to increase the companies profile and turn greater profits whilst helping their community to grow professionally.
