All students have undertaken World Host training, equipping them with exceptional customer service skills, have a first aid certificate and health and safety training.

Students are looking for work placements in a variety of industries and roles so please get in touch with our Personal Coaches: Annick Janganant and Micarla Walker

“As employers, we recognize the huge ‘step up’ to working life, which requires a different mind set and more practical experience than many students have when leaving school. A well-organized work placement allows the student to mature and grow in confidence more than they would in a purely academic environment. It is this combination of academic and employability skills that the Studio School will be able to offer, that I find most exciting.” Phil Pearson, Director, HW Wilson Limited

“As an international employer with local employment opportunities we are pleased to support the concept of The Studio School to ensure our young people become skilled work ready employees of the future.” Dawn Sims, HR Manager, Vopak Terminals

“Being able to invest money wisely into a business enterprise and encourage those funds to grow is a key lesson for anyone considering an entrepreneurial path. We think it is great that Ockendon Studio School is encouraging it’s students to learn how to set up businesses as well think about becoming employees once they leave education.” Philip Young, Director, Grow my Business

“We welcome Ockendon Studio School and its core focus on customer service and customer relations. Our retailers and operators look for these key employability skills in everyone that they recruit.” Paul Lancaster, intu Lakeside Shopping Centre
