With a new academic year ahead, children are back to school with a plenty to learn in and outside the classroom. Working with our business partners we are already planning for another cycle of work experience making sure this knowledge can be put in practice.
The EBA has found over 150 work placements in the last year and administered work experience for over 1500 students in South London. The experience is key to young people’s personal development and helps them adopt professional attitudes. There are however, benefits in hosting a student for the employer too. Young people bring to the workplace new energy, fresh outlook and provide an opportunity for staff development.

Work experience placements are also a good way of spreading awareness of your business or a cause. Equally, they are an excellent opportunity for attracting and developing a new talent.
Most of our partners value the opportunity to show young people the work they do and expose them to the opportunities that lie ahead for young professionals like them. Both students and employers benefit from volunteering opportunities following the placement and a chance of permanent employment in the future.
We always welcome new employers looking to host students on work experience. If you are interested in this opportunity or would like to find out more, please register your interest or call the EBA team direct on 020 7525 2895.
