Work experience placements

The Royal Borough of Greenwich offers a fully managed work experience service for employers and matches them with pupils, aged 14 to 19 in Key Stages 4 and 5, studying at the majority of schools and training providers in the borough. 

Strong relationships between schools and employers

We have a good track record of bringing schools and businesses together. Work experience raises students’ aspirations, increases confidence and informs them of the range and variety of careers that are available. It enhances the employment prospects, education and skills of local people, especially the young and those who are disadvantaged, through the development of activities which bring business and education together to work in partnership.

Work experience placements also allow the work community to influence schools and educational establishments about the skills they require from the future workforce.
