Industry placements are an extended period of structured time that a student spends in the workplace, developing real skills and making a meaningful contribution to the
organisation. They are also a fundamental part of the government’s reforms to technical education (T Levels).
Over the next month, the Department for Education (DfE) and the Strategic Development Network (SDN) are hosting three webinars looking at what industry placements look like in the following skill areas:
- Education and Childcare (10 Sept)
- Construction (15 Sept)
- Digital (23 Sept)
In the webinars, you’ll have chance to hear from employers who are already hosting placements in these roles, how industry placement students might contribute to your
workforce development in the current circumstances, and the support now available.
The session is free of charge. Employers can find out more and register HERE.
(Visit the industry placement website for more guidance, tools and support. Other skill area webinars will be hosted in the autumn.)
