Employers are at the very core of T Levels – from the development of the content the student will be taught via our route panels to the industry placements the students complete as part of their T Level.
At the heart of each course, 45-day industry placement will give you early access to the brightest talent entering your market,
Industry placements help your organisation and your industry. Placements give you a chance to work alongside the next generation of workers entering your industry. You can make sure they develop the knowledge, attitude and practical skills to succeed as well as extra help with your projects and developing existing staff’s mentoring and management skills.
Industry placements can vary in length but must last for a minimum of 315 hours (approximately 45 days). You can offer industry placements as a block, series of blocks, day release or a mix of these, depending on what works best for you, the training provider and the student.
