Careers support at BBIH

Introduction

At BBIH we are committed to ensuring that our students are prepared to move on to the next phase, be it further training, education or employment. Our personalised careers support programme has been designed to provide an environment where students can develop skills that will help them in the world of work as well as practical support such as help organising work experience.

Work experience

For all year groups we support students in finding and attending work experience placements.

Targeted work experience for specific students is designed to support them to enter workplaces.

For the following subjects students are required to work in an industry environment and to demonstrate skills within a workplace setting:

Animal care L1
Plumbing L1
Catering L1
Catering L2

For the following subjects students are expected as part of the course to secure work experience placements:

Childcare L3
Health and Social care L3

Support is provided for these students in terms of making contact with placements. Placements are quality assured by the careers coordinator and students are visited in their placements.
