Training for Employers

An increasing number of organisations require training services to be provided on a ‘bespoke basis’, whereby the location, timing and course programme can be tailored to suit specific training objectives.

We are able to discuss modifying, expanding and tailoring any of the open courses found on this site or create entirely new courses if necessary. Course content can be amended to ensure that delegates are trained in accordance with your specific company systems and procedures, if necessary, we can also provide on-going back-up and verification services.

Our staff are able to travel extensively throughout the region to present our courses to your business. We have access to a large number of training resources at Suffolk New College or can run courses at your premises at a time to suit your requirements.

If you feel your company can benefit from our bespoke training solutions then please let us know how we can help.

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.
