Work experience policy
The Councils wish to encourage and promote work experience opportunities to our local community. In particular we will aim our work experience placements at local individuals who are disadvantaged within the community and/or under represented within the workforce.
The Councils will set up a placement scheme that provides a structured and organised response to requests for work experience, which will lead to a more formal and fairer system for identifying and offering work experience placements.
The Councils are aware of the importance of the provision of work experience placements as an effective way of developing links with the local community. The work experience placement should be a positive and beneficial experience for both the section/department, and the student involved.
Please note: the Councils are currently rewriting and updating the work experience policy to make it a joint policy covering both Councils. This will be published shortly, in the meantime both Councils are using the policy included below which is the Adur District Council one:
If you have any comments on the policy, or for further information about the scheme, please contact the Learning & Development Coordinator.
