Volunteering

Another good way of gaining practical work experience

Volunteering

Wolverhampton Voluntary Sector CouncilIf neither the apprenticeship nor traineeship is suitable for you then there is the other option of volunteering. Volunteering is another good way of gaining practical work experience and gaining new skills. In addition, volunteering will give a positive impression to employers when they see this on your CV. Depending on the company you volunteer for, employers will also provide you with a reference. There may also be other routes of progression, such as in-house training or even employment within the company if a vacancy were available to apply for.

Whichever option you choose to pursue, either way you will be gaining practical and meaningful experience in the world of work. These are options available to help you achieve your ambitions and career prospects in your journey to work! Find out more by visiting the Wolverhampton Voluntary Sector Council website.
