Advice & Help Centre

Work placements are a mandatory part of curriculum for students aged 16-18. The Work Placement team are on hand to offer support and provide details on what is required. Placements will give you the opportunity to develop your career choices, get a taste of work, and develop those critical employability skills needed for real working conditions.

What are Industry Placements?

An industry placement is a shift from traditional work experience to a longer, more structured placement in the workplace for you to develop real work skills and make a meaningful contribution to an organisation. You are expected to complete 315 hours over your two year course, making sure 50% of them are completed in your first year.
