Sleigh and Story

We believe in investing in young people and as part of this commitment we offer work experience every year. We find this rewarding and it allows us to look at a number of young people who are interested in accountancy, which gives us the potential to offer Apprenticeships to the very best. The students have been enthusiastic and pleasant and the support from the college is excellent. If you are an employer, I would highly recommend giving work placements to Kirklees College students.
