Work Experience Quality Standard
Demonstrating to all stakeholders, internal and external, the excellence with which you deliver this essential contribution to our society and economy, and change lives.
Fair Train’s Work Experience Quality Standard is not only a widely and highly respected accreditation/kite-mark, it is also a proven and extremely successful step-by-step “how to” guide. Since 2013, it has played a key role in our accredited organisations achieving high quality Work Based Learning of all types: work experience; study programme/T-Level placements; traineeships; internships; volunteering; and apprenticeships.
More than 500 organisations – employers, learning/training providers and facilitators – have now achieved Fair Train’s Work Experience Quality Standard. They range from major corporations to small, niche firms, schools and colleges and large public bodies (e.g. NHS trusts): in other words, organisations in every sector and throughout the UK.
In particular, Fair Train, which is itself a charity as well as an employer, focuses on supporting organisations in the Voluntary and Community Sector in their workforce development so that this sector, which makes such a significant contribution to the UK economy (£12.2bn*) and employs more than 850,000* people, can go from strength to strength.
