Applying to College or University? Work Experience = POINTS
Value for money? You cannot put a price on a work experience reference from an employer – so Yes it certainly is Value for money!
When candidates are applying to college and/or university they will be asked for evidence of their work experience within that occupational/area of learning sector. Work experience is the best form of evidence as all our employers, across Lancashire or beyond, will provide you with a formal reference which you can copy and supply with all applications.
Applications are usually considered on a ‘points’ system and work experience, as part of any applications, is one of the highest points ratings alongside your qualifications.
