Work Experience

Research shows that people with a disability stay in a job longer and have a strong commitment to their employer and lower rates of absenteeism.

Students gain valuable work experience from day one in Foxes Hotel which is open to the public. Students also have an external work placement in the local community. The development of close working relationships with local organisations has led to a work placement scheme that carefully matches the needs of each individual with an appropriate employer.
