We are looking for employers from a range of different industry sectors who can offer work experience opportunities to our students. By offering a placement, you will be supporting our students to become career-ready whilst also gaining many benefits:
Work experience placements can vary from one week to 45 days depending on the requirements of the course. Typically, shorter placements focus on shadowing and awareness while longer placements are more outcome- focused with independent work. We have three different types of work experience placements at Nescot, all of which must be structured and supervised:
What support will you receive?
We will support you throughout the process. This will include assistance with the necessary paperwork, careful planning prior to the placement starting and ongoing support during the placement. You will also receive our Employer Information Guide and will have a named contact at Nescot. Our Employer Information Guide offers you support with any Health & Safety, Insurance and Safeguarding concerns you might have.
Please note, before a placement starts we ask that you hold current and adequate Employer Liability Insurance and that you complete our Employer Agreement.
If you could provide a work experience placement for one of our students or want to find out more information, please contact the Work Experience and Industry Placement Team on 020 8394 3325 or firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are unable to help us, then there is still something that you could offer our students…
Visit the College and share your industry expertise with our students. Or offer our students a site visits or ‘taster’ days at your business premises to give them an insight into your Industry.
