Work experience for students normally takes place at different times depending on each course. However, given the pandemic, we are reviewing this arrangement and advising students accordingly. The purpose of work experience is to give students an understanding of the working environment and an insight into a variety of education institutions, industries and related careers. Students also often find seeing how their academic and practical learning is applied in the workplace very useful for their studies.
We will support each student in finding the right placement, and our work experience assessment staff will monitor your progress, visit the workplace to carry out regular progress reviews and support your completion of the placement.
