Do you want to offer a Work Experience Placement?

Skills & Learning are the biggest provider of quality job clubs across Dorset. Some people need to have experience before they are ready to take on a job. For some this is a barrier to securing paid work. Work experience may be the key to their success.

Here are a few examples of the type of jobs you could offer for a work experience placement – Do you think you can help?

The duration of the Work Experience (WEX) placement is very flexible and can be agreed in line with everybody’s needs and work patterns. It could be half a day per week for six weeks, or two days per week for eight weeks, or even every day for two weeks. We work alongside you so that you can offer which ever hours are suitable for you. The only thing we ask is that the tasks are meaningful enough to develop skills and qualities recognised as those of a great employee. 

We would like to hear from you if you could offer a Work Experience Placement.
