Work Experience Opportunities

13 July 2012

Thank you for your interest in doing a work experience placement at Sutton College! 

What are the benefits of Work Experience for young people?
  • It provides an insight into the world of work
  • It develops ‘employability skills’ that make them more likely to meet employers’ needs and requirements
  • It gives the child an opportunity to develop new skills and put educational work into practice e.g. IT skills
  • It helps the child to define possible career choices and learning options
  • Children gain an understanding of the relevance of their educational learning and how it can be applied in the work place
  • It provides an opportunity that can be recorded on a CV or future job application 

Please note that whilst we will try to accommodate as many placements as possible, spaces are limited and will be offered to Sutton Borough schools first.  All placements are offered on a first come, first served basis.
