Priority Appointments has again joined forces with the Basingstoke Consortium to offer work experience to a final-year student from a local school.
Basingstoke Consortium is a charity that works with young people, helping to give them the motivation, self-confidence, attitudes and skills for adult life. We have worked with the charity for a few years now to offer a student from a local school the opportunity to spend up to two weeks’ work experience with us.
Initially the student comes in to introduce themselves and, depending on what they want to achieve from their placement, we then plan a programme of work to give them a range of experiences that will show them what life is like in an office environment. We offer support, instruction and advice throughout and, once they have completed the work experience, we work with them to complete an evaluation report which they can show to future prospective employers.
We are looking forward to welcoming our next student.
