Placement students share their experience of Aurion

As part of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) commitment to create opportunities for young people to learn new skills and prepare them for a career in the chosen field, we take students on both short and long term work-based learning placements each year

Over the past few weeks, we’ve provided local A level students from Aquinas Grammar School and The Royal Belfast Academical Institution with an insight into web development and graphic design.

These week long placements are very much a ‘hands-on’ approach, each student is paired with an experienced member of our team and is mentored and coached on developing new skills and teaching the students some tricks of the trade.

Aquinas students, Matthew Smith and Conor Loughran were able to put their newly acquired skills into action and recorded an account their experience with Aurion. Take a look:

Having provided full-time permanent employment to our previous placement students and our former collaboration with Business in the Community’s Charter Work Inspiration, we know that students benefit greatly from these opportunities. Students not only gain experience and a greater understanding of the work place and learn how important it is to master the various skills required to carry out a job function, these placement opportunities also help reduce barriers to employment.

Over the coming weeks, we’ll once again team up with Queens University Belfast to offer yearlong work-based placements for undergraduates, details on how to apply will be announced soon.

We’d like to wish all our placement studies the very best of luck with the rest of their studies and A Level exams.
