Quotes from employers
We appreciate that work placements are an important part of preparing students for their future careers. One of Stanmore College’s students enjoyed the experience so much they requested an extended placement.

I have worked with Stanmore College in the past and found both staff and students there innovative and forward thinking. I would have no hesitation of working with the College again.

I would like to record my thanks to the Stanmore team for their first class support in helping the School review their secretarial services. The Stanmore team undertook this difficult task very professionally gaining a detailed insight into the problem. They provided a valuable final report from which we have developed several successful operational strategies. It was a pleasure to work with Stanmore College's team and I'm grateful for the important part they played.
