We work with many other businesses to support student placements, but we are always looking to expand this offer and are keen to develop relationships with new employers to support our Post 16 offer.

This can be from offering talks, workshops, work placements or experiences of the workplace. If you think you might be able to offer a student a work placement, a site visit or perhaps you would like to come and talk about your area of expertise.

Our current partners have found many benefits of being part of our Post 16 offer and are using the positive effects of being associated with such a forward-thinking approach to training young people.

If you are a business and are interested in finding out more about what we do, would like to see our project in action or discuss ways in which you could work in partnership with CHI, please get in touch.
