Our expert curriculum and careers teams work with young people to prepare them for the world of work. Employers play a key role in supporting our Careers Programme by helping to develop student’s understanding of the workplace, explore potential future careers and improve their work-ready skills. This is done in a variety of ways including:

Industry/employer talks

Workplace visits

Industry/occupation-specific CV workshop

‘Meet the employer’ speed networking

Mock interviews

Live brief activities

Employer led employability and skills workshop

As an employer, you may be looking to take on a work experience student, an Apprentice, or even need support with a project and would like students to be involved. There are many benefits to taking on young people for work placement and other opportunities.

These include:

Fresh ideas – reflecting the needs and interests of the next generation of customers and consumers

Staff development – providing opportunities for existing staff to supervise and mentor an individual

More engaged workforce – sending a positive message to the wider workforce about the values of the organisation

Talent spotting – identify and engage with young people for future recruitment opportunities

If you are interested in offering a work experience placement to one of our students, please email the Work Experience team WEX@nelsongroup.ac.uk

We also offer employers the opportunity to advertise any local part-time job vacancies or volunteering opportunities.

If you are interested in contributing to our Careers Programme or have an opportunity you’d like to tell us about for our students, please get in touch by contacting 01254 354037 or email careers@nelsongroup.ac.uk.  Alternatively fill in the online enquiry form and a member of the team will contact you.
