Lloyd's Banking Group Case Study


This video is an illuminating and inspiring insight into the experiences of an employer, as they go on their journey of hosting T Level students on industry placements and employing them afterwards as apprentices. 

The T Level students featured in the video make a real contribution to their host employer. 

During their time on industry placements they: 

  • Created a dashboard to bring performance indicators to life
  • Built a chatbot for a local business area
  • Developed an induction pack to help new joiners get more information about the business area and locate resources more easily.
