Building partnerships with employers can provide benefits for schools and young people, such as:

  • Young people develop skills for job applications, some new and some they already have
  • Employers provide references and recommendations for young people
  • More high quality work experience placements available
  • Employers share professional knowledge with schools and young people
  • Improved understanding between schools, young people and employers

This helps to equip young people with the tools they need to develop the correct attitude, skills and knowledge for work.
