We are delighted to announce that we have secured further funding from the Turing Scheme.
Building on the success of our placements this year, we will be able to send more learners to Vancouver in Canada, as well as the Czech Republic, Greece, Portugal and Spain.
We also have plans to send learners to an exciting new destination.. St Lucia!
Over the next academic year, we will be able to offer work experience placements to over 250 learners, in a range of vocational areas including travel and tourism, health and social care, business and sport.
‘In terms of their confidence and self assurance, the group have returned to the UK like different people. Something like this on their CV will make the students so much more employable..it’s given them a life experience that they couldn’t have got in a classroom situation.’
Nicola Smart, Travel & Tourism Leader at SGS College describes the impact on her learners, from their recent trip to Vancouver.
We will be sharing more stories from our Canada placements, as well as information about our plans for next year, over the coming weeks.
