Work Ready Virtual Experience  

Developing soft skills virtually.This Virtual Experience is free for all students.

Work-readiness skills are the behavioural skills that enable school and college students to transition effectively into the world of work, and to rapidly add value to their organisations. Research suggests these skills are vital under normal circumstances, with both employers and students citing them as desirable in enhancing performance and efficacy. 

Covid-19 is making the already challenging transition from education to work even more ambiguous and difficult. Isolation, uncertainty and the prospect of working remotely require new, additional skills. 

We are offering a range of free virtual experiences which are designed to arm you specifically with the work-readiness skills that will help you to navigate these challenging times, and empower you to thrive as you seek and secure work experience and apprenticeships.

PRIME law work placement 

Everyone can access law.
You included.

There are certain things you need to be a lawyer. You’ve got to be determined. Hard-working. Switched on to the world around you. But at PRIME, we know those are traits anyone can have. They can’t be bought. They don’t come from private school education, or your parents’ finances. They’re part of who you are, and the person you want to be. So if you want to work in law, you can come from any background at all. Any culture. Any social group. If you’ve got the right attitude, you can become a great lawyer. It all starts here, with legal work experience from PRIME.
