Work Experience

Work Experience and Volunteering are highly beneficial, for your university application/CV, for you as an individual, and for those you help or support. Taking up a work shadowing or voluntary position will help you develop your skills, boost your confidence and greatly enhance your employment prospects in later life. While you are at College we will highlight opportunities available to you. Many courses make work experience compulsory, but we will also help you to find placements outside of College time. Opportunities are both varied and diverse to cover a range of career aspirations. For example; Health and Social Care students have spent time volunteering in care settings; potential medics have gained experience shadowing doctors and observing procedures at hospital; future teachers have spent time in local schools each week as part of their ‘Learning with Children’ enrichment; computing enthusiasts have put their classroom learning into practice during placements at top IT companies; and students keen to pursue a sports orientated career have gained invaluable experience delivering regular coaching sessions to school children.
