Event Details

This webinar offers practical insights and guidance to understand the opportunities available by providing work placements and the benefits of doing so to your organisation and your people. It’s ideal if you’re considering supporting young people, or if you already do so in any way.

Many thousands of work placements are required each year for young people across the region; this webinar will help you to help them by equipping you with advice, guidance and a best practice toolkit. Our goal is to help you deliver meaningful work placements that offer the best value to both the young person and your business.

Who should attend

This workshop is designed to support organisations who would like to find out how to get involved and provide meaningful experiences for young people, as well as individuals who currently supervise and manage work placements and work experience opportunities within their organisations.

It is relevant to digital economy employers of all sizes, from SMEs to larger organisations.
