Work experience

The Service constantly reviews and evaluates the activity we undertake and how we engage with our community.  We do this to ensure that our services are targeted at those most at risk in our community, as well as being efficient, effective and value for money.  As part of this process we have considered activities where we are receiving increasing numbers of requests, which includes:

  • Work experience student placements

  • Public Service Course student placements and provision of group activities

  • Supporting National Citizens Service student projects

Historically we have not allocated any funds to support these areas of work and a number of safeguarding concerns have been raised when undertaking these activities.  In order to address this situation, we would need to increase resources to develop and support how we deliver these activities and essentially redirect funding from other community safety activities.

As a result the Service is not currently supporting work experience activities.
