Support Our Students

We offer a range solutions for business and are here to help you develop your workforce to meet your business’s needs. It is also essential for us as an education provider to meet our student’s needs. We believe that our employer network play a critical role in preparing people for the work place. At the core of everything we do, is the focus on producing the next generation of talent and we are able to facilitate this with the support of our employers from across the region. 

Any size employer can get involved with supporting our students through their learning journey. We have a dedicated placement team who will be able to help you support a student that best fits your business. Depending on the support programme you choose, there are different requirements and our team can help you explore the different options.

Apprenticeships

Hiring young apprentices brings fresh ideas to your team and allows you to train them for the skills your business requires, filling skill gaps and developing loyal employees.

We provide level 2, 3, 4 & 5 apprenticeships in a range of disciplines: Business, Catering & Hospitality, Health & Social Care, IT & Computing, Digital Marketing, Construction, Engineering, Hair & Beauty and Motor Vehicle.

Hiring an apprentice would require you to take a young person on for a minimum contract of 12 months whilst they complete their programme. During this time they would be working for you full time, with 6 hours per week put aside for studying or attending class.

Work Experience

Work experience provides our students with a shorter time in a work environment and is an important element of learning and development contributing towards their future employment. Work experience provides students with a better understanding of the workplace, boosts their confidence and allows them to engage with their local business community in a positive way. Work experience typically last for 2 weeks or more and is unpaid.

T-Levels

T Levels involve more classroom study than apprenticeships, which means students can gain experience in an industry whilst continuing with their studies. Crucially, T-levels include an invaluable industry placement of at least 45 days – more than existing technical courses – to give students the best start to their career.   

Traineeships

A traineeship is a skills development programme that includes a work placement. It can last from 6 weeks up to 1 year (although most will last for less than 6 months).

Traineeships help 16 to 24 year olds – or 25 year olds with an education, health and care (EHC) plan – get ready for an apprenticeship or job if they don’t have the appropriate skills or experience.

Industry Placements

Employers who would like to be involved in the Industry Placement scheme will be required to offer an unpaid placement for 2 days a week during term time, totalling 315 hours placement time.

The courses that require Industry Placement as part of the qualification are: Business, Computers, Childcare, Engineering and Construction.

Shaping our Curriculum
It is our mission to help young people become work ready so that they can complete their qualification with us and head straight into employment if they wish to do so. In order to ensure that we are teaching the right skills we look to local employers to provide feedback on our curriculum and give you the opportunity to have your say on what and how we teach our students.
