Industry placements require you to complete 46-60 days of placement (equivalent to a minimum of 315 hours) as part of your course. There is a dedicated Industry Placement team who work with local employers and organisations from all sectors to be able to offer you high quality placement choices.
Industry placements allow you to improve your technical skills and allow you to become experienced in what you are learning in college in a workplace setting.
As part of your industry placement you will be required to take part in reviews with your Industry Placement Officer, this will help highlight all the new skills you have, as well as, helping you set further goals to achieve.
