What is Work Placement?

Your work experience should form a valuable part of your learning programme and provide you with opportunities to develop your skills, which will support you in your future career.

Industry Placement

This placement is for around 45 days and supports students within the working environment.

During this placement you would work as a member of a team, working towards targets and deadlines which will support you in your learning. You will have scheduled progress reviews throughout your placement, which would generally be at the start, mid-way through and upon completion.
