Why Work Placements?

Placing young people into industry placements is essential for their growth in our industries, but also sets them up for the world of employment once their studies are complete. Industry placements can provide considerable benefits for businesses, helping them to strengthen their links to the local community and provide opportunities for existing staff in your business, such as mentoring and leadership.

We are aware of the struggle to find and retain good staff, we can help support employers’ find the perfect member of staff who are already meeting the industry standards at LCBT and can be trained to meet your requirements. We are passionate about supporting the beauty industry and together we can work towards closing the skills gap.

We will be providing our learners with the opportunity of an industry experience placement to support them with their career aspirations and gain the invaluable experience required to enter the industry once they have qualified.

One of the key benefits to having a young person in your business is to help existing staff further their own skills also, this can be done by getting them to supervise and mentor the young person and have them report in to them. This is a great management tool that your existing staff can bring into your business and help with the managing of therapists and create an amazing work experience.

Our learners will be required to be in their work placement for 2 days a week, for the duration of 3 months. They will be studying their Level 2 or 3 - Beauty Therapy, Hair and Media Makeup or Hairdressing qualification throughout the duration of the placement.

We will continue to support employers and learners throughout the duration of the placements having one to ones and catch ups when required and offering training in their college sessions to ensure they meet employers expectations.

We hope that these long term placements will provide a valuable contribution to your team!
