At Croydon College we put a real focus on employability and making sure our students leave College not only with a top qualification, but work ready and equipped with the skills employers really want.

In order to do this, we work closely with local, regional and National businesses to provide our students with valuable work experience.

Restrictions have meant that we are embarking on a series of virtual work experience programmes for our students between April and May.

We are inviting employers from a variety of industries from multiple departments to support our students in our virtual work experience programme by inspiring them in hour long sessions via Teams.

The sessions would see employers talking about their career journey, discussing available career opportunities and what exactly employers are looking for when recruiting new staff. Students will then have the opportunity to ask questions.

If you’re an employer and interested in supporting our students, please email
