Students are invited to nominate companies that provide exceptional work placements as the National Council for Work Experience (NCWE) launches its annual Awards.

Now in its eight year, the NCWE Awards celebrate the achievements of those employers that are committed to providing valuable work placement opportunities to students.

There are nine categories and the Awards are open to organisations of all sizes and industries. Students have until Friday 10th December 2010 to nominate their favourite schemes.

Heather Collier, director of the NCWE says: “With high unemployment rates and tough competition for jobs, there is more emphasis on getting hands-on work experience to bolster CVs. Placements have evolved immensely in recent years, and these days students are unlikely to spend their time making tea and photocopying, but find themselves embarking on a well-structured and rewarding scheme, enhancing skills and knowledge that will make a valuable contribution to their future careers. It is these internships that we seek to recognise.”

The NCWE Awards can be entered at Entries will be assessed solely by online application and a maximum of six companies will be short-listed in each category. Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony that will take place in London in March 2011. Last year, TUI Travel PLC was crowned overall winner.

This year’s sponsors include AGR, GlaxoSmithKline, CRCC Asia and Centrica.
