An Industry Placement is an opportunity to improve your employability skills and gain industry relevant experience. As a student with us, you are able to benefit from a new 45-day Industry Placement pilot managed by our Skills to Business team.

(If you already have a part-time job this could be used as your Industry Placement, as long as it is relevant to your course.)

  • You will get a work plan, evidence of your experience for future job applications and feedback on where you can improve your skills.
  • Record your hours of attendance at the placement
  • You may also be eligible for a bursary of up to £100 to help with travelling costs.

What are the benefits for you?

  • Raise your profile with potential employer, either as an apprentice or full-time employee after your college course is completed.
  • Gain a reference to help you with job applications in the future
  • Gain an additional certificate on top of your course

“I really enjoyed my Industry Placement. It taught me so much about the sector
 I want to work in, as well as what it is like to be an employee. It has resulted in
me gaining part-time employment whilst I finished my course.”
