Work Experience

North Halifax Partnership recognise that students need a helping hand to complete their qualifications and have a commitment to providing placements to College and University students in Childcare and Administration. Students can play an important role in helping us to provide a quality service to families. They will be assigned a mentor and will be given support and coaching to gain hands on experience and put into practice what they have been taught in the classroom.


Work experience placements also provides the student with knowledge of a real work environment which could lead to full time employment. It gives students a chance to meet new people and grow a network of contacts as well as boosting confidence.
