Work Experience

Work experience is an important part of becoming ‘workplace-ready’.  This is an opportunity for SJBC students to build useful skills and gain valuable experience that cannot be obtained in the classroom.

Work experience can empower new talent, encourage, inspire, and influence a different mindset, especially as our students’ progress onto apprenticeships, further and higher education.
