Work Placements

Work Placements

The Training & Employment Team works with young people who are moving from school or college into the world of work or who are currently unemployed and looking for work or training. An integral part of all our training courses is a work placement with local employers.

Are you interested and able to offer a work placement to a young person?

These are some of the benefits :

There is no cost
You have the opportunity to gain a free pair of hands when it suits you best e.g if you have an apprentice who attends college on block release

If you are planning to recruit it gives you an opportunity to try out someone before you commit and also saves potential recruitment costs
The young person is fully supported by the Training & Employment Team at South Lanarkshire College who are at hand to deal with any issues
You are providing invaluable experience for a local young person and helping to make them more skilled and employable
The team can also advise on training and funding. In some programmes there may be wage subsidies or other financial benefits available

We require employers to have the following

Employer’s Liability Insurance
Fire, Accident and First Aid procedures in place
