All students are encouraged to undertake work experience throughout their time at the college. This may be face-to-face and/or virtual work experience.
This helps to improve employability skills and get that vital hands-on experience.
Some courses include significant work placements to allow students to develop key skills required to have a successful career.
A work placement will give you the opportunity to:
- Develop the key skills needed within your career choice
- Develop your employability skills and professional behaviours.
- Discover new talents.
- Strengthen your CV.
- Improve your knowledge of the industry.
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.
