To enable our young people to develop a wide range of valuable skills, we have developed a number of partnerships with key employers across Oldham and Greater Manchester.
Some of the work experience placements currently on offer to our young people include roles within:
Oldham Athletic FC
Jenkin Auto’s & Tyres
We are continually creating new links with businesses which allow us to match our young people with roles that meet their individual interests and needs.
There are many ways that you can help us, including:
Work experience placements
We are looking for employers to host work experience placements for young people aged 14 to 19 who will be supported by a job coach.
Do you have a role available that might be suitable for one of our students? If so, we can meet with you to discuss a working interview, whereby an applicant is given a trial rather than a formal interview. This is a great way for employers to assess an applicant’s skills and suitability before formally offering them a contract.
We are also looking for employers who could host one-off tours of their business to some of our students for them to find out more about your industry sector. You may also be willing to come into one of our schools to talk about your role and your company!
If you are an employer looking to find out more, please view our Employer Guide here.
We are happy to talk to you in person about any of the above opportunities. We hope that our students will provide valuable assistance within your place of work and prove to be a help, not a hindrance! All of our partner employers have had fantastic experiences when working with us and many have gone on to promote our projects to other employers. We value our employer partnerships and are also happy to support you in other ways by providing appropriate training to your staff. This could include ‘Disability Awareness’ training for all staff or more specific training as required.
If you would like to find out more about how our interns can benefit your business while learning valuable skills, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Anne-Marie Cripps, our Experiencing Working Life Pathway Lead, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or our Senior Job coach
