Consider becoming an Employer Partner with Roots and Shoots!

Roots and Shoots is a vocational training provider based in Kennington, South London. Our students have different needs which means that despite their many talents, without support it can be harder for them to get into employment.

That’s why we partner with local employers who offer high-quality work placements. Work placements provide our students with an important stepping stone to employment, and help to develop their confidence, skills and experience of working life.

Tailored support - Our specialist team will support you to understand and accommodate each student’s needs, so your business can benefit fully from the skills they have to offer.

Flexibility - Whether you can offer a few sessions or a sustained placement, we’ll work with you to find something that suits everyone.
