Work experience opportunities

Arden College has good and lasting relationships with work placement providers. All learners here have outstanding opportunities to access a range of work placements in different environments and industries.

We also work in partnership with Sefton Council to provide placements within local parks and gardens where students help to keep the park tidy and free from litter.

In-house work experience includes Media and Design using IT and work in the college reception.

Work experience provision expands each year and the college is successfully working with partners to ensure opportunities to transfer placements to student’s home areas after they leave Arden.

Hospitality work placements offered include:

  • Pizza Hut (this has led to paid work for a number of students)

Retail work placements offered include:

  • Barnardo’s
  • Marks & Spencer
  • Cancer Research UK
  • Pet Warehouse

Horticultural work placements offered include:

  • Martin Mere Wild Fowl and Wetlands Trust
  • Botanic Gardens in Churchtown
  • Southport Football Club
  • Meresands Woods
  • Longton Brickcroft Nature Reserve
  • The National Trust in Formby
