Work experience placements are planned through well experienced and qualified EBSI Advisors/ Co-ordinators, employers and education institutions. Learners are able to develop their employability skills such as teamwork, problem solving, and communication, together with numeracy, literacy and ICT skills. This gives a clearer understanding of the working world and provides the base for making the right career choices.

There are two processes for finding work placements:

  • Own find by the learner or school/college – using this form
  • Through EBSI
