Industry Placements give young people studying towards a technical qualification practical experience directly related to their course, helping prepare them for the world of work.
Employers play a key role in creating opportunities for young people in the local community at the start of their careers to develop their technical and employability skills and build confidence.
We are passionate about Industry Placements because they offer excellent opportunities for both employers and young people.
From the recent pilot of this programme, we know that Industry Placement students bring enthusiasm to learn a fresh perspective and increase diversity in the workforce. The longer duration, typically 50 days across a two-year programme, ensures students are given sufficient time to master the essentials and that the employer has the opportunity to develop the student’s technical abilities.
- Inspire the next generation to work in technical roles
- Address current skills shortages
- Strengthen the recruitment pipeline
- Bring fresh perspective into your business.
