Offering Work Experience
Inspiring young people to achieve
Work experience provides a vital opportunity for our 16-18 year old students to gain employability skills, enrich their learning and open their eyes to the opportunities ahead of them.
Landau Forte seeks work experience opportunities for all of our learners studying A Level and BTEC courses in a range of subjects. Our 16 to 19 Curriculum Offer is not just about gaining academic or vocational qualifications. We want our students to receive an enriched, rounded and well grounded education, that offers life skills.
By offering work experience, employers can help lay the foundations for young people’s futures and gain benefits from the exercise themselves.
