Offering placements

Are you able to offer a placement to a student? If so please contact the Education Business Partnership on 020 8487 5392 or ebp@richmond.gov.uk

REBP provides support to employers who would like to offer a placement to a young person.

What will happen if I can offer a placement?

A member of the Education Business Partnership team will arrange a date to visit your premises to carry out a work experience pre-placement check. This involves discussing the tasks that the student would complete and any hazards and risks associated with them, writing and agreeing a job description for the student, and having a discussion regarding any other aspects of the placement. This visit also gives you the chance to ask any questions that you may still have about the process.

You will be asked to indicate during which months of the year you are able to offer a placement, the job description will then be published to the relevant schools. REBP will contact you when a student selects the placement as one of their preferred choices.
