Work Experience is a key part of life here at Scarborough UTC as we teach technical excellence to make employable graduates. The students partake in a week of work experience each year and many work with our employer partners to develop their engineering and cyber security skills.
Students are expected to learn by doing and this practical experience gives them current knowledge of the workplace. Students are free to choose where they would like to do their placements that are all insured and checked by the North Yorkshire Business and Enterprise Partnership. We offer advice and support to students to gain placements that will develop their skills and confidence in the workplace. Many students have gained employment through their work experience placements and are now working for Unison, Osprey and Deep Sea Electronics either in their school holidays alongside their studies or as a full time career.
In order to develop student confidence and employability mock interviews with our local partners help prepare students for the world of work.
