Graduate recruitment

Recruiting graduates can be a great way to meet your HR needs, but many companies are starting to question if it's enough.

As a leading employer ourselves, we understand the importance of attracting young people from all walks of life, not just graduates, to make your workforce as diverse, representative and sustainable as possible. Plus of course, helping young people progress and develop in-house will provide you with the skills you need, tailored to your organisation.

Why choose Pearson College London

Our Work and Study programmes will help you recruit an exciting mix of young people, including the brightest and best school leavers. They will work for you from day one, and you’ll sponsor them to study one of our flexible, industry-based programmes. Giving you the best of both worlds, a talented, enthusiastic employee who’s immersed in your company from the word go, and a great way to grow their potential and help them learn and develop.

Best of all, the work and study approach can give you a great return on your investment, as well as a strong, loyal, passionate workforce.

All our programmes are designed and delivered by top employers, as well as top-notch academics, so they’re perfect for young people who want to work and study at the same time.

Because our programmes are flexible and industry-focused, they’re ideal for corporate sponsorship and can be tailored to meet your training and development needs, giving you the skills and experience you need from day one. You’re welcome to recruit people directly or we can do it for you, helping you to find people with the potential to succeed.

We encourage applications from a diverse range of students including those who don’t have traditional educational qualifications. We look beyond pieces of paper to individual potential, so we’re perfectly placed to help you develop your workforce.

We offer a wide range of programmes including undergraduate honours degrees, top-up degrees, postgraduate qualifications and professional courses.
Our programmes are a great fit with traditional qualifications like A-Levels, BTECs, Higher Nationals and Foundation Degrees, or with more vocational training, including Apprenticeships and Higher Apprenticeships.

Our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes are validated by world-renowned university partners, including Royal Holloway and Bedford New College, University of London; Ashridge Business School; and The University of Bradford.

With so much competition for graduate jobs, many young people are now looking into the idea of work and study, so it’s a great time to attract the very best talent. Last but not least, you’ll be helping to shape the future of higher education and youth employment in the UK.
