This guide offers a practical overview of what training providers and employers need to consider if they want to make the most of their work experience programme.
The checklist contained in the guide breaks these areas into themes so they can apply equally to employers and providers, while also enabling their programmes to be individually tailored.

This guide runs alongside the national Work Experience Quality Standard accreditation created as a framework to support employers and training providers offer first class work experience for young people. The framework covers the chief features of a successful work experience programme – from setting up and implementation to evaluation and the organisational infrastructure required. Organisations are independently accredited by Fair Train at Bronze, Silver or Gold level, enabling employers and training providers alike to demonstrate they are offering top notch programmes, and making a valuable contribution to their local community.

As always, AELP welcomes feedback on the guide, as this will help us to establish what further support AELP can provide in the future.
