Student Placements

We offer our students the opportunity to undertake industry placements. These are a great way to help you stand out to employers and gain valuable work experience in your chosen industry.

What is an industry placement?

An industry placement is a period of work experience which you undertake alongside your studies in a role directly related to your vocational course. It gives you the opportunity to develop your practical and technical skills in a professional work environment and therefore can be a great boost to your employment prospects on completing your course.

Industry placements also give employers the chance to ensure that young people are developing the skills and experience that their industry needs.

What are the benefits of industry placements?

  • Improve your practical skills and subject knowledge
  • Learn “soft skills” such as problem solving, time management, organisational management, communication and decision making.
  • Discover personal career goals
  • Gain first-hand experience of an industry
  • Build up a network of contacts
  • Gain good references
  • Get your “foot in the door” with a local employer and boost your chances for future employment
