Students engaging with work experience opportunities in industry also have a number of benefits for the host employer.

How will this benefit my future talent pipeline?

Engaging as an employer partner gives you a clear line of sight to the future talent pipeline and the opportunity to develop potential employees.

Will you promote my business/brand at the College Group?

We regularly promote our employer partner brands through a range of channels.

What impact will it have on the community?

Partnering with the college enables you as an organisation to have a positive impact in raising aspirations in the community of the future talent pool, helping in achieving corporate social responsibility objectives.

Will the College influence students to take part in work experience?

We prepare our students well for any external work experience activities. Our talented student cohort could bring fresh ideas to your business or any existing projects.


T-levels are the technical equivalent to A-levels. T-levels combine classroom-based learning with a long-term industry work placement throughout the course that enables students to put into practice the skills they have learnt in the classroom in a real-life working situation.

Each T-level course involves an industry placement, which is a 315-hour work placement with an employer that aligns to your area of study and the career path that you are aiming to succeed in.

More information about T-levels can be found by clicking here.

Each year we support our students in carrying out work experience placements to experience the world of work, which benefits them in a number of ways: 

Development of technical skills

Working with industry professionals enables students to develop their skills in other ways than they are used to in College whilst exploring their career aims.


students get the chance to network with other employees in their chosen industry to start to build their network contacts.

Employability skills

On work experience it’s not just the technical industry skills that our students develop, they also develop transferable skills such as teamwork, communication, using initiative and confidence that all contribute towards becoming work ready.
