A key aim of Work Experience Services is to ensure the quality and relevance of the service to schools, colleges and their learners.
We offer relevant guidance from staff with knowledge of local opportunities, of the local labour market and of general careers and progression routes including apprenticeships and higher education.
The importance of high quality, impartial and independent careers advice and guidance is recognised in statutory guidance (Careers Guidance and Access for Education and Training Providers - January 2018) and has given a higher priority in school OFSTED inspections since September 2013 taking into account how well the school delivers advice and guidance to all pupils in judging leadership and management.
