Work Based Learning
Most of our second year undergraduate students undertake the Work Based Learning module which involves spending 5 weeks (May-June) working for an organisation. In addition to the project outcomes or work tasks completed during the placement, each student will produce a reflective report that focuses on their skills development.
Could your organisation benefit from a five week unpaid placement? Would you like to get involved with a scheme that helps nurture the next generation of employees?
You can find full information on our website at www.chester.ac.uk/wbl or give the team a call on 01244 512100.
