Phone giant offers free work experience for youngsters

FREE work placements are being offered to young people with phone giant BT.

The three week course, combining hands-on work experience with coaching and training is open to anyone aged 16 to 24 not currently in education, employment or training.

Although the course does not carry a formal qualification, attendees are given a certificate showing their attendance and achievements to demonstrate their commitment to prospective employers.

The next South Yorkshire course, at the BT contact centre on the Lakeside Business Centre in Doncaster, will started on August 22.

A further course will be held in Sheffield starting on August 29.

Tom Keeney, chair of BT's regional board in Yorkshire and the Humber, said: “BT work placements give local, young people the opportunity to experience the working day and gain invaluable insight of what is expected in the workplace.

“There will be more opportunities to join a work placement in South Yorkshire so even if you can't attend these particular courses I’d encourage you to register your interest to make sure you don't miss out.”
