At Fareham College, everything we do is focused on preparing you for your future career. Our Work Experience Team is on-hand to help you find the best work-based placements, so you can learn more about jobs you are interested in while gaining practical skills.
Work experience is a compulsory part of every course at Fareham College.
Regardless of the subject you are studying, you must complete some form of work experience because it helps you to:
Build your skill set
Enhance your CV
Develop personal skills in a real working environment
Try out different employment options and road test the career you are interested in
Build up your professional contacts for the future – you might even bag yourself a job!
For us, it’s all about careers, not just courses! Work experience means you will develop the workplace skills that employers are looking for, and also gain a clear idea about what the job you want to do will involve.
Whether you have a clear career plan already, or are considering all your options, our Work Experience Coordinators provide dedicated support to help you develop job search skills and find professional placements that will give you a taste of the working world.
We liaise with employers across a range of different industries to offer you the experience of working with some of the most interesting and exciting companies in the area.
Industry placements & T levels
