Industry placements are a key element of the 16 -18 study programme, to gain experience with a relevant employer in your chosen field. An industry placement provides a great opportunity for you to get a taste of working life and see where your course could take you in the future. It will improve your understanding of your course, and enhance your employability skills including time management, networking and teamwork.
