Finding your own placement
At Gateshead College we have links with lots of local and national employers across all types of jobs so get in touch with us first and we’ll see if we can help.
You may also want to use your own contacts. If you have a particular organisation or sector in mind then maybe your family or friends have links that could help you. If you’ve got contacts, then use them.
Another approach would be to take a look at the professional body for your sector or if your chosen careers have events, get yourself along. You never know who you may meet.
Remember, if you’re arranging your own work placement, it’s still worth talking to us as we can make sure that all the terms of the placement are in place for you
