Work Related Experience
Here at Eastleigh College our aim is to get students ready for the 'real' world of work. All students are encouraged to undertake related work placements and participate in employability workshops as part of their course.
Work placements provide many benefits, from helping you to develop your skills, building a link between your course and career opportunities and helps you to stand out to potential employers. It is a healthy opportunity for you to demonstrate what you have learnt and prove that you are a valuable member of the workforce. Students who have undertaken work placements often build positive links with employers and have a clearer understanding of the type of job they want.
Participating in work placements and employability workshops can enhance your qualifications, and puts you in a stronger position when seeking career opportunities. For more information please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
