Industry Placement

Industry placements give students an opportunity to develop their practical and technical skills in a role directly relevant to their vocational course.

They also give employers the chance to ensure that young people are developing the skills and experience that industry needs. There is no charge to the employers for industry placements.

Industry placements will form part of our new T Level courses at Uxbridge College or Harrow College, which will give young people a technical alternative to A levels. The first 3 T Levels have now launched at selected colleges and schools across England.

To help prepare for the introduction of more T Levels over the coming years, we are looking for employers across all sectors to work with education and training providers to offer industry placements now.

Benefits for your business of having an industry placement student include:

  • Developing existing staff’s mentoring and management skills
  • Improving the recruitment pipeline for your business
  • Giving opportunities to young people from a wide range of backgrounds, leading to a more diverse workforce
  • Bringing in new and imaginative ideas
  • Building partnerships with local training providers.
