Fair Train believes passionately in the value of work experience, not only for learners looking to kick start their careers, but also for employers looking to recruit the best talent and see the best results for their businesses.
The majority of businesses say that work experience is critical when recruiting new staff, according to the British Chambers of Commerce. Shockingly, though, only one in four employers offer any form of work experience!
The picture is worse in certain parts of the country, where young people face inherent disadvantages when preparing themselves for work. There are significant geographical differences in the numbers of employers offering work experience opportunities, and it is not a coincidence that these areas coincide with the hotspots for youth unemployment.
