For the third year running GForces have been awarded the ‘outstanding employer contribution’ award for work experience students from the Kent Educational Business Partnership. We have been recognised for exceptional support in assisting the young people of Kent through work experience in the academic year 2011 – 2012.
So far we have given work placements to fourty three students over the past three years ranging from 1 week to 6 months. These students have been from schools and universities and we have two more starting later this year. With our recent building expansion we have been able to take on more work placements and we aim for this to increase further next year.
In addition to work experience we have also offered a number of full year paid internships to university students as part of their sandwich course.
