Work experience in study programmes

Education Funding Agency have published the long awaited guidance. It is quite clear what constitutes external work experience, what is non qualification activity and programmes where there would be an expectation of external work experience.

There is no dispute about the value of work experience that may end in a job, is rigorous in managing performance and can provide a credible reference. However there are not enough employers for all colleges’ needs. More details can be found at:
