A student at Derby College Group has secured a full-time job after impressing on a work experience placement.

Jose Malanga, 18, who studies at the college’s Broomfield Hall campus, has been on work placement with RS Coaching as part of the Level Three Sport and Exercise Science study programme to gain valuable experience in the industry.

He embraced all the opportunities available during the work placement – taking on additional responsibilities in coaching sessions and gaining Dodgeball-specific qualifications.

Business owner Raj Singh was so impressed with his work ethic that he offered Jose a job, which he will take up when he finishes college this summer.

Nick Ramsden, team manager at Derby College Group, said: “This is the perfect outcome for Jose and for many of our other students who recognise that work experience is not just good for their CVs but also an opportunity to shine and potentially gain a job before they even finish college.

“From an employer’s point of view, offering work experience to students gives them the chance to see if the young person is a good fit with their business and the opportunity to mould them into their employees of the future.”
