Industry Placements

As part of the new T Level qualification, local employers can take on a student for a 45-60 day placement. Different to the traditional week or two of work experience, these placements allow you and the student alike to benefit from the additional placement time to make a genuine short-term difference to your organisation and showcase what they are capable of.

We can also help you to hit your targets for Social Value and Corporate Social Responsibility.

We are always looking for ways in which to expand our employer network including inviting employers to deliver Guest Speaker presentations, run Virtual or In-Person Site Tours, offer short term work experience (up to 36 hours) or work with a learner on a volunteer basis. All of these activities contribute to Social Value and CSR.
