Work Experience Service

Skills and Participation offers Work Experience support to schools as part of our Careers Sold Service. Schools are able to buy in Skills and Participation expertise and services to source Work Experience placements and carry out Health and Safety checks. The team are IOSH qualified (Health and Safety for Work Placement Personnel) and have a large number of companies ready to offer placements to young people.

Sourcing Placements

Using established links and through creating new opportunities, we are able to source interesting and engaging placements for students. After giving us some basic details on the young person, a placement tailored for that young person is identified before a health and safety check is completed.

Health and Safety Checks

If a placement has already been sourced we offer a health and safety checking only service. The team are all IOSH qualified (Health and Safety for Work Placement Personnel) and experienced in carrying out efficient and thorough checks. Feedback will then be given to the school, whether the placement is suitable or if any actions are required.
