Calling Employers!

To enable our young people to develop a wide range of valuable skills, we are looking to develop a number of partnerships with key employers across Tameside and Greater Manchester. Some of the work experience placements currently on offer to our young people across the Trust include roles within:

  • Tameside Options

samuel laycock schoolWe are continually creating new links with businesses which allow us to match interns with roles that meet their individual interests and needs. There are many ways that you can help us, including:

  • Work experience placements – we are looking for employers to host work experience placements for young people aged 14 to 16 for 2-3 hours per week for a group of 3 students who will be supported by a job coach. Currently, work experience placements are offered at local charity shops and cafés.
  • Employer encounters – we are also looking for employers who could host one-off tours of their business to some of our students for them to find out more about your industry sector. You may also be willing to come into one of our schools to talk about your role and your company!

We are happy to talk to you in person about any of the above opportunities. We hope that our students will provide valuable assistance within your place of work and prove to be a help.
