In many schools, work experience relies on young people arranging their work experience placement with family or friends. But what about those with no suitable connections?
Work experience has been shown to increase future earnings and reduce the risk of being NEET (not in education or employment), so students without connections miss out on the actual experience as well as the longer-term benefits. We’re trying to help raise our students’ aspirations and confidence and improve their future chances by sourcing some placements in Sheffield.
Can you help? If you can’t host placements yourself, do you know anyone that can? Could you share this with your network (please!)?
