Employers have an important role to play in guiding the development of young people at the Windsor Forest Colleges Group. We work collaboratively with over hundreds of employers locally & nationally to understand the challenges and aspirations of neighbouring businesses.

Employer Engagement at WFCG

Students will benefit greatly from getting industry experience which will help them kick-start a successful career in their chosen field and these types of opportunities can:

  • Give young people earlier exposure to the world of work by helping them develop the skills, experience and knowledge they’ll need when they leave College
  • Provide a chance to get a head start on their careers by gaining an industry recognised qualification, work on real projects and broaden their career options when they leave College
  • Provide employers with the chance to attract highly motivated and committed young people who are willing to learn, and identify young people who are right for your business and ensure your organisation has people with the skills you need

Are you an employer?

If you are an employer, you can get involved and help young committed learners to take the first step in their careers. There are many levels of engagement, this can and always will be tailored to best suit the needs of your business.
