You’re running the programme on behalf of your students!
Whether you are a High School, College or University, as an educational establishment, you're responsible for ensuring your students find a work experience placement relevant to their skills and interests, to form the foundations of their future career pathways.
Employers are looking for a range of employability and soft skills from potential candidates. Work experience is a great opportunity for students to develop and learn new skills to equip them for their job search once they leave education. It's important to remind them of the skills that employers desire so they can be aware of which skill-sets they need to develop and learn. Refer to the Employability Skills page to remind students of what they need to consider in their development.
