Host a work experience placement

Offering work experience to students, particularly those under the age of 18, can be challenging for employers. Some don't know where to start.

S4S NextGen helps make hosting work experience easier by supporting employers with recruitment, planning and delivery. They will help you create meaningful work placements for young people from state schools who would not otherwise have access to these opportunities.

You may already have an existing programme that you would like to develop or grow, or you could be completely new to hosting work experience.

S4SNextGen will promote your opportunities to a wide schools network helping you reach a new audience. They also provide free tools and resources to support organisations at all stages including:

  • Safeguarded recruitment portal and guidance on recruitment
  • How-to guides
  • Models and templates for placements
  • Activity ideas
  • Best practice insights

Whether you are a small firm, cultural organisation or multi-office corporate, S4S NextGen can help overcome some of the challenges to hosting young people on placements.
