The ultimate aim of these courses is to assist the participants into employment.  South Lanarkshire College is running two separate schemes to encourage local businesses to get involved:  we are able to offer wage subsidies to employers and we are seeking unpaid work placements in all job roles.

What benefits will work placements bring to your business?

  • Flexible business support: you decide the tasks, hours and length of the placement.
  • Free, fixed-term additional staff resource:  a no cost solution to tackling time-consuming tasks, enabling your staff to concentrate on your core business function.
  • Raise the profile of your company: demonstrate your corporate social responsibility; engage with your local community; and gain free advertising – your company logo in our publications.
  • Your own staff will benefit from training, mentoring and supervising students.
  • Trial candidates are placed on an unpaid basis throughout the work placement.
  • If the placement is successful and you would like to recruit, why not contact us to discuss wage subsidies?
