Henshaws College - Work experience and enterprise

Work placements

Students on our supported internship and employability study programmes will have opportunities to undertake off campus work placements. In the past we have worked with Harewood House, Sainsbury’s, the Odeon and the Fair Trade Shop in Harrogate as well as the cafe at our Arts and Crafts Centre. Students benefit from real life work experience, with the support of a Henshaws Job Coach.

Building Confidence

It’s a fantastic way for our students to build their confidence as they are given more responsibility and independence. It prepares them for the next step in their adult life. We also find that employers really benefit from a motivated and dedicated workforce.

Overcoming barriers and creating opportunity is a daily occurrence at college. Innovation and adaptability is at the heart of what we do to build confidence, develop independence and support achievement of our students."

Dan White, Work Experience Coordinator

On campus opportunities

We also offer lots of opportunities for work experience and enterprise on our college campus. It may be selling plants to staff that you have grown in horticulture, or helping the team with essential admin tasks. We hope to prepare all our students for bright adult futures, equipped with the skills they need.

Business opportunities

We would love to work with new businesses who would be able to offer work placements to our students. There are lots of benefits to working with us and our team will be on hand to support every step of the way.
