Work Placements

The work placements we organise are practical training to help students from the European Union gain an understanding of British business culture, improve their English language skills and generally experience working and living culture in the United Kingdom.

We secure, manage, monitor and evaluate the work placements for your students, based on the project information you gave us and the information completed by students in their Application Forms and CV documents.

We also need to ensure that the student's qualifications, skills and experience (as written in the Application Form and CV) suite the placement company.

We generally need three or four weeks in order to find the right work placement for the student, although some specialist sectors need longer (such as Law).

Generally, we meet with the work placement company and discuss your students’ requirements with them, reviewing their CV and Application Form. The final decision about work placements is made by the work placement company. As soon as we have a confirmed work placement, we send all details to you and the student.

The professional and vocational sectors in which we can offer the work placements include: 

  • Accounting and Finance
  • Administration and Secretarial office work
  • Advertising
