Works Experience

WORK EXPERIENCE

As a student we understand that work experience can help and support you to gain valuable insights into your chosen career path and learn more about the skills and experience in order to be successful moving forward. Some of the key benefits of work experience are enabling you to put theory based learning into practice, helping you to build relationships with key people and helping to improve your knowledge and confidence in your chosen career area. Typically work experience would be up to 5 consecutive days and consist of shadowing opportunities within a chosen discipline/area.

Volunteer

VOLUNTEERING

Gaining real-world experience through volunteering is a great way for you as a student to develop key work based skills and experience, increase employability and support the local community in Leeds at the same time. Volunteering has various benefits, including providing you with where your strengths lie, as well as providing a unique perspective for a particular organisation or sector, which in turn could be helpful for your future career planning, and confirming your future career aspirations.
