We prepare students for the real world 

Every school leaver who attends Grantham College undertakes a work placement as part of their course. This may be a young person’s first experience of employment, and helps to enhance their CV and job prospects. Students are encouraged to find a placement in a setting related to their subject. Previously, students have worked in salons, retail stores, law firms, local businesses plus a range of other environments.
