Industry Placements



Every T Level will include an industry placement with an employer focused on developing student's technical skills learnt in the classroom. Training providers will help you organise placements lasting a minimum of 45 working days. You can offer industry placements as a block, day release or a mix of these, and can discuss sharing part of the placement with another employer if necessary.

  • Gaining extra resources for day-to-day projects
  • Developing a cost-effective recruitment pipeline of talent for entry-level jobs 
  • Building the capacity of your business and develop the skills you need
