During your full-time study programme you will have the opportunity to take part in work experience and secure skills for your career. This will allow you to develop transferable work-related skills and gain an insight into the career of your choice. Gaining an understanding of the world of work prepares you for your next steps after college.

The college has dedicated Work Experience Placement Co-ordinators to help you secure placements and gain quality experience. Your work experience will vary from course to course and you may undertake a placement as part of your core provision for at least one week during the academic year. Work experience can also take place on study days, during college holidays or as part of your course timetable.
