An industry placement is an extended period of structured time that a student spends in your workplace, developing real skills and making a meaningful contribution to your organisation.
Many employers are already offering industry placements, which is a fundamental part of T Levels – a new course designed by employers for 16-19-year olds, which combines classroom learning with a substantial industry placement (at least 315 hours).
Industry placements can work in many roles within your organisation. In this 1-hour webinar, we’ll give you an overview of what industry placements look like for science roles, how to make sure it is a success for you and the student, and the government support now available to help you.
