Welcome to the employers page.

We are pleased to be working with local employers across Stoke on Trent and Staffordshire.

"We have worked with Stoke Studio College on their placement programme for students and this has proven to be a very positive experience, both for the business and the individual student. It has given us the opportunity to work with and assess the ability and enthusiasm of the young person, and given them the experience of the work environment associated with their subject of interest. We were so pleased with our first student that we offered him a permanent position with us when he finished college, and he has now developed into a valuable member of our Design team, working with architects and main contractors on our major projects. He has developed strong CAD skills, and is a very productive and respected member of the team. We believe he has a very bright future ahead of him.

We now have two students on placement to give them the same experience, which will be invaluable to them in identifying their development path for their future careers. We are pleased to offer them that experience and learning.

The concept of the Studio College is a good one, as it really does offer a good, vocational route for students to learn about the subjects that they are interested in, and offers employers the chance to work with, and help to develop, potential employees for the future. The more that businesses in the region participate, the more successful the College will become.

As a company, we are committed to creating and developing opportunities for young people starting out in their careers, and we believe that Stoke Studio College offers us a great route to finding the right students"
