Work experience service re-start

As employers welcome back their colleagues to the place of work, social distancing rules have changed and education gets back (in the main) to pre-Covid ways of working, we are pleased to announce the restarting of the Work Experience Service.

Over the next few weeks we will be contacting schools and booking work experience slots for January to July 2022 (a number of schools have already been in contact to request their slot – if your school hasn’t yet, please get in contact with the team).

The work experience service (organised by BEP Group) covers Essex, Southend-On-Sea, Thurrock and the East London boroughs of Havering, Redbridge and Waltham Forest.  If your school is outside these areas, and there isn’t a local work experience organiser or Education Business Partnership (EBP), please get in touch to see if we can help.

Our Central London and West End pre-placement vetting service for all work experience organisers and schools/colleges nationally has also restarted.  If you need a job description and young person’s risk assessment provided for a central London placement, please get in touch either by using the contact form of by calling 01708 436440.

Work Experience

As you would expect, work experience has now been postponed. Schools and employers alike have confirmed their intention to start up work experience as soon as it is considered both safe and practical to do so. Many employers have confirmed that placements already arranged, but postponed, will be able to take place at some point in the future.

In the meantime, the staff at BEP Group would like to extend our thoughts to everyone affected by the pandemic. Stay safe and well.
