Overview

Our Code of Practice guides us all on our day-to-day activities. We employ people who embody our values and we ensure that everyone lives by these values in everything they do.

Innovation

It’s important to work in partnership with stakeholders. We take pride in our ability to create relationships with like-minded organisations, that want to support the positive transition into employment and higher education for all young people.

By creating a unified vision between all parties, we are able to offer stimulating opportunities for our future workforce.

We believe in creating a smooth transition into the working world. That’s why we want to bridge the skills gap between education and industry, so students feel confident and prepared to tackle life after education.

Honesty

As an organisation, everything we do is centred around the best interests of young people, educators, parents, employers and staff at educational establishments.

Integrity and innovation are important to us. We promise to keep our fingers on the pulse in terms of industry trends and ensure that young people are correctly educated.

We will never offer any inappropriate financial enticement or other incentive, including direct and indirect payments, offers of employment, substantial gifts or entertainment, to any person in an attempt to influence a decision-making process which may affect our organisation or our industry.

We promise to deliver a high standard of customer service to our clients and we will resolve any complaints promptly.

We will behave in a professional manner, showing respect to the reputation of our sector and to all other organisations that we have contact with.

Our aim is to improve the odds for young people from a range of backgrounds.

We endeavour to listen to our customers’ needs and evolve to remain at the forefront of work experience delivery.

We endeavour to ensure the truth and accuracy of any information provided to any third party. We promise to never knowingly make false or misleading claims or misrepresent the opinions of others.
