When done well, work experience and pre-employment activity can form an integral part of an organisation’s workforce supply strategy, helping people of all ages and backgrounds understand the world of work and make decisions about their education and career and acting as a feeder into apprenticeships, pre-registration courses or broader employment.
Work experience can help an individual l earn more about a desired career, gaining valuable practical knowledge. It can also help an individual develop aspirations for previously unconsidered career options. It is a requirement for some professions and higher education courses and can take many forms.
Many health and care organisations already run significant work experience and employability programmes. If you are looking for potential work experience opportunities in your area, please contact the employer directly.
