A good opportunity to contribute to your CSR agenda!
In collaboration with Patcham High SEN School, our colleagues at the EBP are looking for work placements with local employers for 1 day a week, for a total of 30 days during term times - starting in August 2012 - March 2013.
A financial incentive is available to employers who successfully complete the placement programme with their student.
Patcham House SEN school have x 8 year 11 students (age 16) all young men. These students attend Patcham House which is Special Educational Needs school and are in the main, undertaking mainstream GCSE and AQA awards with a view to going on to further education and seeking paid employment within the local area in the future.
All of them have good communication skills, are keen to learn more about being part of a team and are looking forward to their work experience.
The school have asked us to contact local employers through our usual networks, to establish whether any of our SMEs in particular would like to offer some extended work experience to any of these young people to give them a step up to the world of work, take on some employability skills and provide an extra pair of helping hands to your business.
This will provide these young people with a step-up in their job search in the future.
The duration of the placement is for one day a week for a term, or even two terms - a total of 30 weeks (August to Christmas 2012 - and January to Easter 2013).
To recognise this contribution from employers, there is a financial incentive in the region of £600 to £700 at the end of the two term placement if the student completes the placement with you.
If you have the capacity to take on more than one student - that is fine. Are you interested? Please contact Therese Cole at the Brighton & Hove Education Business Partnership on 01273 294819 to discuss further.
