Creating and managing successful work placements – here’s how….

 The T-level proposals have thrown a spotlight once again on the importance of successful work experience and work placements, and the recent award of Capacity and Delivery Funding for many organisations wanting to build their operations in this crucial area means that providers need some expert guidance in how to go about creating and managing them.

AELP has teamed up with the Institute of Employability Professionals to pull together a series of workshops that will draw on good practice from right across the sector - from employment related services sector companies that have long been using work trials as an integral part of their offer, and from skills providers who have been enhancing their offer with employer-focused placements.

In this day-long workshop, you will hear about the ‘active ingredients’ in work placements: what enhances learning, what develops learners’ skills, and what engages employers. You’ll hear about how to fully develop and support placements and how to manage the risks – everything from approaching employers to post-placement review. This is designed to be a highly interactive session with lots of discussion and shared exercises that will leave you with a full understanding of the very best practice in this key and growing area of provision. If the prospect of organising work placements is a bit daunting – or even if you just need an overview of what is the latest good practice – then this session is for you.

The first in the series takes place in Manchester on the 24th May, and both AELP and IEP members enjoy a discounted rate of £169 + VAT per person. Places are limited so you are advised to book early – click here for more details and to reserve your place!
