New Work Experience Standard

By Laura Knowles

Do you employ graduates or take on students for internships and work experience

opportunities? If so, we thought it would be good to let you know that there has been a new

Work Experience Standard developed by AGCAS (Association of Graduate Careers

Advisory Services). This has been created to support employers in providing first-class work

experience opportunities for students and graduates. It is also intended to help employers

gain access to a larger and more diverse pool of student and graduate talent.

The AGCAS website has lots of useful information about The Work Experience Standards,

as well as a straightforward and user-friendly guide. We have added below some of the

summary info they have in their guide below:

If you need any advice on work experience opportunities, attracting graduate candidates or creating internship opportunities please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us here at Second Chapter.
