The Warrington Campus of the University has a dedicated Work Based Learning (WBL) Office to oversee the whole of the placement process together with tutor support throughout the placement.
Here is what some of our placement providers have had to say:
"Throughout her placement the student has been enthusiastic, reliable and willing to get involved, her approach has been professional and proactive at all times. She is a great ambassador for the Business Management course and for the University of Chester" - Scottish Power, Warrington
" The student worked very well with the team, willing to try new things, showed initiative and asked appropriate questions when he needed to. Produced excellent work, especially his piece from the second heat of Warrington's Got Talent" - Radio Warrington
"The student was a useful member of the team who took on board every job we gave her to do, she did the work with a great deal of competence and knowledge of IT and databases. We have been able to offer her a short term paid employment post covering the summer holidays" - Warrington Disability Partnership
