Work Experience



The Changing Education team take pride in delivering comprehensive work experience packages that ensure excellence at every stage. Work experience is vital in helping young people make the right choices and realise their potential. Such experiences can be pivotal for young people in deciding which career path to take and can be an important first step into the world of work.

Ofsted has identified that 75% of schools are failing to provide adequate work experience programmes. At Changing Education we understand the challenges faced by schools and colleges to encompass a ‘wider careers model’ within their curriculum and the additional cost and resource this can incur.

Everyone in the Changing Education team has a background in education, we are passionate about making a change and partnering with schools and colleges to help their students make the right choices and realise their potential through work placement programmes.

Our one-stop-shop package is ideal, as it works in partnership with schools and colleges to implement work experience programmes including building relationships with local employers, completing risk assessments and final evaluations.

“CONNECT’s paperless system has saved us a lot of time and resource. The new CONNECT app is a great addition, enabling students to access their own placements from their phone. Overall, it’s easy to engage with employers and we can simply pull off the reports and evidence needed for Gatsby benchmarks.”
