Employer Guide to Work Experience

YC Hertfordshire can provide employers with our free Employer Guide to Work Experience which is a step by step support manual to help you to offer a successful placement.

The Guide includes:

  • Hints and tips for successful work experience and how to get the best out of the placement.
  • How to set up a timetable and share responsibility for the student so that teams can be involved rather than one individual or Manager.

  • Common misconceptions with regards to work experience.
