Experiencing life in the work place is an essential part of the College's curriculum.
Employers don't just look for qualifications anymore. Being able to demonstrate industry knowledge and experience in the workplace is vital when it comes to securing employment, in all sectors. We work with both local and national employers to provide valuable experience to our students in a variety of ways.
Work experience is a mandatory part of a student's study programme. We work with employers to provide meaningful, relevant work experience opportunities for students who are eager to gain an insight into working within their chosen sector.
Industry placements will become an essential part of College qualifications when Technical Level (T Level) qualifications replace the current study programmes. They will give our students a 50 day placement in a real working environment to prepare them for further study and life in the industry.
