Recruit a learner on placement (e.g. one day a week)

All of our full time programmes have placement modules where the learners go out into employer organisations to receive valuable work experience. These placements are beneficial for the learner and the employer. The employer gains by getting access to a knowledgeable and enthusiastic student. In the past, many of these students returned to work permanently with their placement employer. We are always interested in hearing from employers looking to take on a student on placement. The length of the placement varies from programme to programme. The various placement details for our programmes are available below:
