We understand that we have a critical role to play in preparing our students for the next step of their progression either in education, training or employment. We work in partnership with many employers across the region and understand the importance of making our students aware of the many different job roles and opportunities that are available. We want to help our students to understand that there are some great companies to work for and we are continually developing ways to engage with them.
Employers face increasing demands to engage with education and there are many reasons why they want to get involved, the main one being to actually meet our students and realise that they may be talking to their future employee.
We are continually building solid and long lasting relationships with our local employers and work with over 100 on a regular basis with activities such as work experience, employers coming into the college to give industry talks and also talk about their own career path, our students are given the chance to visit employers to be able to observe and understand what goes on. Below are some of the examples of our students having a taste for what the world of work is really like.
