Help local students in your area
by offering a work experience placement to young people in education.
What’s in it for you?
- You will be helping a young person improve their employability skills – this will benefit the whole area and your industry.
- Young people are given a real chance to see the world of work for themselves.
- You will be influencing the competencies and skills that young people need for work.
- Having work placement students will enhance your kudos and can be used in your marketing campaigns.
- Participation contributes to your corporate responsibility.
- You are supporting your community.
Help us to help them.
- Employers do not pay work experience students during the time they are with you.
- Placements usually last one week.
- Students are monitored by their school and usually have a visit from a member of staff during the week.
- You will introduce your company to the students, who will be trained to undertake jobs/tasks that are suitable and safe for their age group.
- A company colleague will look after the student and liaise with either Diamond Education Service or the school.
- DES work placement staff will meet you before to clarify the roles and responsibilities and your answer questions.
