Offer a work experience placement

Offering a work experience placement can benefit both young people and businesses.

We arrange thousands of work experience placements each year for schools and colleges in the London boroughs of Hackney, Camden and Islington. Placements can take place over one – two weeks, or once or twice a week over an extended period.

What do young people gain from work experience?

Work experience gives young people practical knowledge and experience of workplaces. For many young people, it can provide access to opportunities that are otherwise out of reach. A work experience placement gives young people:

  • Understanding of the world of work
  • Understanding of an occupation or industry
  • Career direction
  • Improved employability and soft skills
  • Networking opportunities with employers
  • An opportunity to put classroom learning into practice
  • Increased motivation at school/college

How do businesses benefit from offering work experience?

Organisations across all sectors can help shape the workforce of tomorrow while receiving a students’ help. You could benefit from:

  • Demonstrating corporate social responsibility
  • The chance to develop employees’ management and supervision skills
  • A raised profile and improved reputation in your local community
  • New perspectives and fresh ideas from young people
  • Access to potential future trainees or employees. Previous work experience students have since entered part-time employment or apprenticeships with their employer hosts.

Is my business or organisation suitable?

All you need to offer a work experience placement is Employers’ Liability insurance and a safe and supportive environment. Your workplace should also be accessible by public transport.

Inspire! will support you to offer an effective placement every step of the way. Employers will be matched with suitable students and receive:

  • Guidance on identifying appropriate tasks and creating a basic job description
  • A risk assessment of your workplace
  • On-hand support throughout the placement
