Work placements and any work experience are highly desirable but subject to availability. All candidates are expected, and encouraged, to do their best to gain purposeful work experience during their course. It is not realistic for the College to be expected to find trainees a placement; though we will do all we can to assist in finding suitable opportunities. The timetable is designed to give all candidates the opportunity to complete at least one/two days of work experience within their academic week.
The College can offer a variety of additional qualifications and activities beyond the core course requirements. All students are invited to complete additional qualifications.
