Work Experience

As part of the Study Programme, all students have the opportunity to undertake work experience in their chosen vocational area. Sutton and District Training work closely with all students in preparing them for their work placement; ensuring that they are able to create a good impression at an interview and have the behaviour and social skills that employers are looking for.

Alongside this, we ensure that all students have successfully achieved the technical skills and knowledge of their vocational area to help them succeed in their chosen work placement. The work placements can often lead into positive progressions, once the student has achieved their qualification.

For students who are not ready for work experience, we organise Industry Talks from companies such as L’Oreal, Willmott-Dixon Construction Ltd, Ardmore Construction Ltd, Galliford-Try, United Living and Mears, and demonstrations from companies such as Tyrone Lawless and Kacey-May Nash. This gives all our students the opportunity to look at the Industry options and feel inspired.
