All learners are encouraged to participate in the New College Work Experience programme. Work experience placements usually last for a week. To date, the Trust has built links with over 700 different employers / work experience providers.
Placement providers range from local infant, primary and high schools; local businesses (including accountancy firms, solicitors and graphic design companies), local hospitals and care homes. All of these placements are checked by the Work Experience Co-ordinator to ensure that they provide a safe, healthy and supportive environment for learners.
Work experience at New College is actively encouraged as it assists learners with future career and study choices. Evidence of work experience enhances university applications and job applications.
