This line manager briefing examines the subject of work experience, including how to prepare for the arrival of a work experience student and how to conduct the placement so that the student and organisation benefit from the experience.
It covers work experience for students who are in their final two years of compulsory schooling or in further education (for example those in sixth-form college studying for their A levels) undertaking short placements of one or two weeks. Organisations may organise placements for younger students, students in higher education or those not studying, but different guidance may apply.
This line manager briefing is accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation for training purposes, which should be used in conjunction with the briefing. The briefing and PowerPoint presentation can be adapted for use, subject to the XpertHR terms and conditions of use.
