Employer Information

We work collaboratively with a range of employers both locally and nationally to understand and address the needs of industry. Employers endorse our curriculum and work with us to ensure that all of our study programmes are fit for purpose. Employers are key stakeholders at the College and a valuable source of information and experience.


Employers endorse our curriculum in a variety of ways:

  • providing work placements
  • offering apprenticeships
  • delivering talks to students
  • being keynote speakers
  • attending careers events
  • hosting visits to the workplace


A skilled workforce is at the heart of every business. Getting to know the education and skills landscape – and the different ways to get involved – can benefit an employer in many ways, helping you to get and grow the talent you need.

Click here to view The Education Landscape: A Guide for Employers developed in partnership with the British Chambers of Commerce, Confederation of British Industry, Federation of Small Businesses, Institute of Directors, Careers & Enterprise Company, and the Department for Education, explains what’s changing to support businesses, how you can get involved – for example, through placements for students or advising on the content in courses – and the benefits of doing so.

Working with young people with SEND (special educational needs and disabilities)

Don’t let SEND be a barrier to your workforce.

Working with and supporting young people with SEND in the right way can enable them to develop more independence in their role, becoming a stronger asset to your team.

We have strong links with the Dorset LEP and other local enterprise ensuring the longevity of land-based industries within the County.

Without the support from employers, our students would not have access to the opportunities that help prepare them for the world of work.

We genuinely value the commitment and dedication employers demonstrate towards supporting our students and pledge that we will support our employers in return.

Now more than ever it is important to secure the future of our young people. Going forward our curriculum will remain flexible and mitigate the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic by delivering content that is informed by employers, champions employability and helps students to develop the skills, knowledge and behaviours critical for business growth and sustainability.

Please click here to read a report from the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) endorsed by Dorset Careers Hub, called ‘Meet the Future – How employers gain from helping young people get career ready.’ Find out more about how supporting young people can impact your organisation.

Please note : Even though the report refers to ‘schools’ throughout, it is still applicable to employers supporting students from colleges and other further education provisions.
