Recruiting students for Company Programme
Students taking part in Company Programme need to be aged 15-19 years during the academic year they are taking part.
The Programme works best when:
- students volunteer to take part in the Programme and recognise that a high level of personal commitment and responsibility is required to get the most out of this opportunity
- the students are empowered to take the lead; they have good guidance but it is their student company and they make all the key decisions
- a dedicated CL, who helps with organisation, gives encouragement and links their experience to students’ other learning and/or qualifications
- trained and committed BAs, who lead the students’ learning, provide new role models and build a bridge to the real world of work
Students should only participate in the Programme once throughout their school/ college lifetime. Individual students or student companies found to be participating for a second year will not be allowed to take part in the Showcase events or the competition.
