Work placement opportunities for your organisation – we need your help!

We know that you want to recruit people who are well qualified. But we also know you’re looking for people who have the confidence to look you in the eye, hold a conversation, shake your hand and use their initiative. At Gateshead College, we deliver education with employment edge, a unique combination of the highest standards of education and real world skills. But we can’t do it alone. We need your help.

We’re looking for employers to work with us to offer work placement opportunities and help our students to build the skills you and your sector need, now and in the future. In return, you’ll get an extra pair of hands, some fresh ideas and possibly even your next new team member, without the hassle and cost of recruiting. We can tailor the work placement to suit your business, you’ll have the option to interview potential students and we’ll support you fully throughout the process.

With your help, our students will leave us with a CV that will stand out from the pile, the confidence to shine at interview and the self-belief to tackle the world of work.

If you think you can help or you are interested in finding out more, please contact Louise Grant at Gateshead College at
