Work Placement

The role of the Work Placement team at Thomas Rotherham College is to support our students to find valuable, meaningful work experiences during their time with us. The aim of this is to strengthen future UCAS, apprenticeship and job applications. Work experience helps our students to cement their career choices and future aspirations. They help to develop confidence and skills within a real-life work environment and to make connections in their chosen field.

We currently support up to 1500 students and work with over 100 employers in different sectors such as allied health, medicine, childcare, schools, hospitals, sports plus many more.

We are always on hand to offer advice via email or face to face meetings. We visit the sixth form classes and tutorials to discuss the many benefits of having work experience on your CV. We support students to apply for DBS checks – (Disclosure and barring service) to support placements working with vulnerable people.

We are based in student services and appointments can be booked with us via the student services help desk.
