Preparing young people for their future careers
Here at the College, our aim is to help young people gain experience in the industry they’ve chosen for a career. Work placements are an important part of many courses at the College and offer students a valuable insight into the world of work, as well as an opportunity to gain essential career skills.
We know that businesses look for students with passion and an appetite to learn on the job. That’s why we work with employers to ensure their student placement is equipped with a set of relevant skills and knowledge that will benefit their business, while the student gains confidence and on the job experience.
Industry Work Placements Pilot Scheme
In 2019, we launched the Industry Work Placements pilot scheme that provides students with an opportunity to work between 45 and 60 days during their college year, and places them with employers whose business is matched to their course of study.
