Work experience

Many professions, particularly those heavily reliant on people skills, now expect students to be able to show work experience in a relevant field. These include Care, Engineering, Law, Medicine, Nursing, Teaching and Veterinary Science.

If your son / daughter is taking a vocational course, work experience will be integrated into their programme.

All students are encouraged to be actively involved in enrichment activities during their time at College.

Volunteering activities for non-vocational courses can be arranged with support through the Volunteering Coordinator.

For many students intending to enter very competitive courses and professions, Higher Education institutions and future employers are impressed if further work experience has been arranged at the student’s own initiative, perhaps during the Summer holidays. This should not be arranged during term time.
