Help us help students by signing up now for work experience.
NAWIC London & South East is supporting Tower Hamlets EBP, a charity that helps local schools organise work experience placements for their students in businesses across the borough and central London. Nearly all students in Tower Hamlets undertake a one- or two week work experience placement whilst in Year 10 or Year 11. Some also carry out a second placement whilst studying at 6th Form. They aim to find and organise over 3,000 placements for their students per year, many of them within the construction industry.
They are always looking to expand their pool of placements to broaden their students’ understanding of what is available to them after education. In particular, they have a focus on supporting young women in entering sectors underrepresented by females.
Businesses are the cornerstone of the charity as they provide disadvantaged young people with access to networks and experiences that they would not have otherwise. The skills and confidence that they gain from these placements can make all the difference to their future.
