Support Student Modules

Support Student Modules

Could you benefit from having a motivated and enthusiastic student in your classroom or organisation for up to 70 hours? Or maybe you already work with one of our students and want to encourage them to further develop their employability skills? If so our Career Development Module can help.

Hosting a Career Development module placement can :

  • help you gain a fresh perspective
  • give you a chance to share your good practice
  • increase your opportunities for staff development

Student employees or volunteers

Students will contribute proactively to meet and enhance the aims of your organisation.

You can advertise an opportunity for a student through our website

Student tutors

Student tutors are positive role models who work alongside teachers, supporting learners with their studies and helping to raise their aspirations.

In our most recent full-scale consultation, 90% of placement hosts commented on the added value delivered by student tutors to teachers and learners.
