This is an interactive virtual work experience placement, where students have the opportunity to demonstrate progression in key skills through working on a real-world project on behalf of Argent (Property Developers).
Students from local colleges can take part in a virtual work experience placement over a week, designed and run by King’s Cross Recruit and Argent. Throughout the week students learn about the property management industry and gain insight into a range of roles. They are set a real-world project to apply their key skills including Teamwork and Problem Solving. Students will be involved in a range of employability workshops; exploring career routes and preparation for the workplace, as well as the opportunity to have their CV reviewed.
The project, which is focused on supporting the launch of a “floating classroom” in King’s Cross, has been created to provide tailored challenges for students that focus on their areas of study. Skills Builder Benchmark self-assessments have also been built in at the start and end of the programme to review and measure impact.
