As well as external links with employers, City College Peterborough has made a commitment to using its own workforce to enhance and develop the skills of learners through Take over days and shadowing opportunities. Learners have the chance to apply for a “Job ” in the college and shadow member of the college staff. Learners are supported to make meaningful contributions and learn about the world of work in a supportive environment.
Inspired by TED talks, the college has the ambition to create an inspirational video library and live talks from employers, learners and other stakeholders. The aim is to inspire young people through passionate and motivational stories that can be accessed in a variety of media.
City College Peterborough has a long and successful history of working in partnership with independent businesses and large organisations to support learners to develop their employment skills.
