WORK EXPERIENCE works!
We’re looking for forward-thinking local employers who would be willing to provide work experience for City of Stoke on Trent Sixth Form College students. Work experience opportunities are vital for students to gain an understanding of the world of work. By hosting one or more of our students you would be giving young people a great opportunity and bringing benefits to your own business as well as you get to meet your future talent!
Work experience placements are flexible and can be arranged to fit with your requirements. This could be anything from just a few hours a week, a whole week or even a full day each week for a longer period.
Lots of jobs can help students gain valuable transferable skills, so even if your industry doesn’t directly relate to a student’s course, it can still be hugely beneficial. Offering work experience can also be an effective way to meet potential candidates for apprenticeships or even employment on the completion of the student’s course.
If your organisation is able to support our students by offering work experience, please complete the expression of interest form below.
We have offered more than 20 students work experience opportunities from Stoke Sixth Form College. I am glad to say that placement students have made vital contributions but most recently two gaming students supported a Games Jam we were hosting and supported two young children over their half-term to learn how to build their first computer game.
