While you are at college, you will spend some time on work experience. This could be working in the college café or gardens, or in their shop in the high street.

You could go and work with an outside employer, trying out a job that interests you. The college will make sure you get the support to get to work, and to do the job. You will learn new skills and find out about being an employee. You will need to arrive on time, get on with other people and listen carefully to what you are asked to do.

Work experience can help you know what sort of job would suit you best, and could help you get a job when you leave college.
