There are many reasons to choose a work-linked training course to continue your studies. Here are some of the benefits of work-linked training that may help you make your decision:
Work experience: Work-linked training allows students to combine their theoretical training with practical work experience. Students work regularly in a company, which allows them to put into practice the skills they learn in class, and to discover different professions.
Regular income: Work-linked students receive a salary from their employer for the duration of their contract. This can help cover the costs of their studies, such as books, transport and living expenses.
Job prospects: Work-linked students are often in a better position to find a job after their studies. Employers are more likely to hire people who already have work experience and a good knowledge of the company.
Professional networks: Work-linked training allows students to develop professional relationships with employers and work colleagues, which can be useful for their future career.
A better match between studies and skills: Students on sandwich courses have the opportunity to see how the skills they learn in the classroom are put into practice in a real-life professional context, giving them a better understanding of how these skills can be applied in their future careers.
