Your guide to work experience

Working with Oxfordshire responsible business group Reciprocate, the OWE team have devised a best practice employer guide to work experience, which is a practical approach to organising work experience in Oxfordshire. It explains the many benefits to employers of offering work experience placements, such as being a great way to find future Apprentices for your organisation.

Responsible Business Week

This week is Responsible Business Week, an annual national campaign that provides an opportunity for businesses to inspire each other to make a positive impact in society and turn aspiration into action. This is a fantastic time to have a look at the guide and consider whether you could offer an amazing opportunity to a young person.

Can you help the Oxfordshire Work Experience team reach 50 placement offers for Heyford Park Free School students during Responsible Business Week 2017?  

If you’re not in the Bicester area but would be interested in offering a work experience placement, please contact the team at OWE@oxfordshirelep.com or see the work experience pages on the OxLEP website for more info.
