Industry Placements

«Ƶ strives to ensure that all our learners gain essential employability skills to not only achieve their future career aspirations but also ensure businesses have a skilled pipeline of workers that are ready for the workplace.

A key part of this is gaining real work experience through industry placements. Industry placements not only develops learners’ knowledge, behaviours and skills required in the workplace; it also allows employers to have direct access to the talent pipeline.
