Work experience may be in-person or virtual, independently organised or the college’s bespoke ‘The Internship’ programme, which we developed with 8billionideas.

Work experience is additional to any part-time job a student may have and helps to develop key employability skills like team-working, problem-solving and communication.

​​Some students organise work experience placements during Wider Skills Week to explore potential career areas in more depth.

The Progression Guidance department can help students find work experience placements.
