Employers – how can we help your business?

Employers

There are a number of ways employers can benefit from working with the College and its students, from apprenticeships and traineeships, to career talks and events. See how your business can get involved below.

Advertise a vacancy to students

Our online Jobs Board is available to employers to advertise their job vacancies to our students. We welcome all job types to be advertised – including part-time, full-time, temporary or graduate roles. Simply email careers@farn-ct.ac.uk to request a job advert template. You will then be sent a simple form to complete which we will then check and promote to all our students.

Need help with specific projects?

If you have a specific project that you would like assistance with, from filming and production to supporting your team, please contact us at careers@farn-ct.ac.uk

Work placements

We are inviting employers to work with us on extended industry placements, in recognition of the benefits gained by students during these placements.

The new placements involve:

  • Student(s) from a relevant course working with you for a block of five weeks or one day per week
  • Student(s) being involved in real-world tasks relevant to their career aspirations
  • Providing student(s) with a safe environment

Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships provide affordable training for employers as the training costs can be subsidised by the Government. Apprenticeships are for people aged 16 and over. We can help you with recruitment by providing a Training Needs Analysis, advertising your apprenticeship job vacancies free of charge and screening applicants to meet your business needs.

Alternatively, an existing member of your staff can also be considered for an apprenticeship.

Traineeships

Traineeships are education and training programmes with work experience. They unlock the great potential of young people and prepare them for their future careers by helping them to become ‘work ready’. You could be helping students by offering work placements that teach them more about the working world.

Student talks by employers

Speaking to groups of students about your organisation, career journey or industry can help them with their career plans. It can also inspire them to train for a career they may not have considered or known about.

Careers events

We invite employers to host a stand at our annual Careers Fair and Open Events. This is a great way to meet lots of students all at once, with many organisations using the events as a way to fill current job and apprenticeship vacancies.
