Work Experience


As part of the Study Programme, all learners have the opportunity to undertake work experience in their chosen vocational area.

Sutton & District Training work closely with all learners 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 learners 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 learner has achieved their qualification.

  • Placements will last a minimum of 45 days
  • Students will improve their ability to gain a job
  • Likely to result in further opportunities like paid employment and apprenticeships

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