Many are practical roles e.g. building trade, mechanics, childcare, hairdressers etc. the placements help young people to gain self-confidence and focus on their future career.

"It was a pleasure having Jason here last week and the lack of confidence he walked in with was certainly gone by the end of the week, one of the ladies who worked with him most told me she was missing him today so he must have made a great impression.

Please let me know if I can do anything else for you, the school and especially Jason." - Employer.
