Why is work experience important? (Video)

If you’re a young student planning to gain an apprenticeship, work experience is a great way for you to familiarise yourself in a working environment. In this video from the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), witness what the ‘work experience can’ campaign has to offer.

The ‘work experience can’ campaign aims to support 18-24 year olds without work experience. It’s about inspiring them to fill the gaps in their employment history, helping them to demonstrate the ‘soft skills’ employers look for.
