“KC Works” in Partnership with Stafflex - is a joint project between the college and Stafflex, we are tasked with providing placements for students to gain some real work experience before leaving college. This is a pilot project so our key focus for placements in this start-up year is for Level 2 & 3 students not progressing in education in the curriculum areas detailed below.

Engineering

Construction

IT

Business

Sport

Public Services

Hospitality

Travel & Tourism

It is anticipated other areas will be included in the future as the project grows.

KC Works will work with students to find a suitable placement for them, even if they want to try out a new area of work. We will arrange interviews with employers and confirm all the placement details before starting. Students will need to sign up to a learner agreement to confirm their commitment to the placement.

We are currently visiting the relevant tutorials to find out which students are interested on taking up a placement. If students have missed these sessions or are concerned they are leaving college with little work experience they can speak to their progress coach to be referred to KC Works.

The KC Works team will be linking with the SU to visit different centres over the next few weeks, starting with Engineering on Wednesday 18th March 12-2pm to answer any questions students have about the project. Please feel free to drop down and let other students know we will be there.
