Over the last two years, many employers have been offering industry placements – an extended period of structured time that a student spends in the workplace, developing meaningful skills and making a positive contribution to the organisation. They are also a fundamental part of the government’s reforms to technical education that includes T Levels.
Over the next month, the Department for Education and the Strategic Development Network (SDN) are hosting three webinars for employers, looking at industry placements in the following skill areas:
- Education and Childcare (10 Sept)
- Construction (15 Sept)
- Digital (23 Sept)
In the webinars, you’ll have a 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
There will be more webinars to follow in the autumn, in the meantime, visit the industry placement website for guidance, tools and support.)
