Work Experience Programmes

For job seekers, apprentices, undergraduate students, postgraduates and professionals
‘Vocalus’ Work Experience Programmes are designed for job seekers, apprentices, undergraduate students, postgraduates and professionals aged 16+ who have EU (European Union), EEA (European Economic Area) or PACs (Pre-Accession Countries) nationality and are interested in work experience relevant to their educational background, previous training and vocational skills.

The main objective of a ‘Work Experience Programme’ is to provide participants with an international professional outlook, which builds on the knowledge they have already acquired, or are acquiring, in their own countries. In order to achieve this objective successfully, we organise intensive, specialised English language courses as part of the Work Experience Programme. Such programmes last a minimum of 4 weeks and up to 48 weeks in companies or organisations in the U.K.. In addition, social and cultural programmes provide participants with a broader knowledge of their new environment.

Once participants have started their work experience, their companies or organisations will be contacted regularly in order to have an update on their progress. Also, Vocalus representatives will meet participants, so that any issues that might arise can be resolved quickly and effectively. Furthermore, additional support and careers information on a UK and EU level is available at Vocalus.

The most commonly requested areas for ‘Work Experience’ are Marketing / PR / Office Administration / Human Resources / International Trade / Logistics / Retail / Computing & Information Technology / Energy / Engineering / Shipping / Tourism. All Work Experience Programmes are located in the U.K..

Other sectors that co-operate in Work Experience Programmes in U.K. are: automotive industry, pharmaceuticals, chemical industry, insurance, hospitality industry (hotel, catering and tourism management); travel agencies, freight forwarding, airport services, leisure industry, computer industry, graphic design, hospitals and medical practice, architecture, accounting, consulting, public sector organisations, social services and different types of associations, including international charities, chambers of commerce, educational institutions such as primary schools, secondary schools, language schools, colleges of further and higher education as well as universities and many more….
