Student Placements

Interested in taking on some of our learners on a placement?

Most of our full time programmes have placement modules where the learners go out into employer organisations to receive valuable work experience. These placements are beneficial for the learner and the employer. The employer gains by getting access to a knowledgeable and enthusiastic student. In the past, many of these students returned to work permanently with their placement employer.

The length of the placement varies from programme to programme. Each of our placements are coordinated by an academic member of staff who supports the learner and employer throughout the placement.
