Heart of Worcestershire College (HoW College) Level 3 Business student, Elliott Fitzgerald-Harris, had a brilliant opportunity earlier this year to gain an ‘ageless’ work placement with Age UK Bromsgrove, Redditch & Wyre Forrest (Age UK BRWF).

Speaking on his placement with Age UK, Elliott told said: “During my time at Age UK I completed a number of tasks that allowed me to gain multiple skills such as planning events, being part of meetings and learning how to give my input. My work experience has helped me gain confidence and improved it massively.”

I have gained multiple skills such as planning events, being part of meetings and learning how to give my input. My work experience has helped me gain confidence and improved it massively.”

Work experiences, such as those provided by Age UK, are incredibly worthwhile which is why HoW College incorporate an element of work experience into every further education course; providing every student with the chance to build on their skills and improve their CV.

Moving forward into the new academic year Heart of Worcestershire College and Age UK BRWF are continuing to work together, and in response to COVID-19 are planning virtual work placement projects until placements can resume in a physical capacity.
