What is Work experience?


Work experience

Meaningful work experience is important to help you develop the skills and knowledge you need to move into employment.

Work experience is also a fantastic opportunity for you to try working in a variety of places.  This can help you to make decisions about what job you might like to do in the future.

Many schools and colleges offer their students the chance to take part in work experience.

Work experience placements are also an important part of a traineeship and supported internship to help prepare young people with SEND for employment.
