The benefits of work experience

Work experience gives young people the opportunity for involvement in the work place, helping them to understand how the world of work operates and how it is different to school. It also gives Bam Nuttall the opportunity to raise its profile around the UK to be involved in developing the workforce of the future.

Work experience brings tangible benefits for young people, employers, schools and society as a whole. It can increase young people’s confidence by challenging stereotypes in relation to their career aspirations. Many young people believe that work experience helps develop their employability skills that around a quarter of students are offered part-time employment following a work experience placement. Work experience also brings the curriculum to life by showing how subjects can be applied and valued in the workplace, this encourages students to become active rather than passive learners by developing a range of skills through hands – on activities.

School leaver opportunities
