Work Experience / Industry Work Placements

During your study programme at Suffolk New College you will have the exciting opportunity to enhance your learning by completing subject-relevant work experience.

“planning your work experience placement in advance is crucial to securing the placement of your choice. Your placement will give you an invaluable insight into your chosen career path to discover if this profession is really for you. It will build your confidence, improve your communication skills and looks great on your CV when applying for future employment.”

Work experience must be course related and relevant so that you gain a meaningful insight that covers a practical range of activities. You will be responsible for arranging your work experience with support from your Work Placement Officer and Progress Tutor.
