Are you an employer looking to take on a work experience student? Find out what it may look like for your organisation.
Alongside A Levels, Apprenticeships and Vocational Qualifications, T Levels will become one of the main option for School Leavers in the UK and will replace many of the current vocational qualifications.
T Level qualifications are designed to train students to be equipped with the practical skills and knowledge in their chosen industry. Alongside this they will advance their core English, maths and digital skills. Each learner will spend a minimum of 315 days with their work experience employer.
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) will be hosting three webinars where they will explore what industry placements look like in the following skill areas:
- Education and Childcare (10 Sept)
- Construction (15 Sept)
- Digital (23 Sept)
Through the webinars, you will have chance to hear from employers who are already hosting work placement students, along with details on how an industry placement student might contribute to your workforce development in the current circumstances. You will also find out about the support now available.
The session is free of charge.
