Industry Placements

Industry Placements give learners the opportunity to develop their practical and technical skills in a role directly relevant to their study programme. They also give employers the chance to ensure that young people are developing the skills and experience that industry needs.

Business and Career Development

Our Industry Placements Team will help to match learners with placements and forge a relationship with the employer to ensure each learner’s work placement is tailored to reflect their college programme and career ambitions; and the placement is of benefit for the employer to promote business development.
