Work experience and careers
We facilitate work experience for all students.
Our work experience programme is different to a traditional school, where students might be offered placements which are far-removed from their career aspirations, over a particular week or fortnight, in an area they have no interest.
- Every student receives regular personalised 1-2-1 advice and guidance
- We invested in providing all students access to a full time Careers Advisor
Our programme includes regular and powerful experiences of work. These take place largely in the form of employer projects, which are led by professionals in our university and industry partners. Every student receives regular personalised 1-2-1 advice and guidance, and we have invested in providing students with access to a full time Careers Advisory.
We are also able to use our professional networks to obtain experiences in the workplace – through trips, visits, masterclasses, placements and traditional work experience. Examples of this have been placements at Battersea Power Station, Skanska UK, Bowmer and Kirkland, Imperial College, King’s College and Mace.
