All of our Vocational programmes include work experience linked to your career aspirations as an essential part of your course. These placements are aimed at expanding your knowledge and skills and gaining a deeper understanding of your chosen career.
For some courses you may get the opportunity to take part in an extended Industry Placement, where you’ll spend additional time to a normal work placement learning ‘on the job’ in the workplace.
You’ll benefit from professional mentoring, as well as impressive knowledge and skills for progression into the industry. Some of our students have managed to secure full-time employment and Apprenticeships with their employer from their Industry Placement. You will have support in finding your placement through your tutors and our dedicated Careers Team.
The College has excellent links with industry. We work closely with a wide range of employers both locally and further afield, providing you with exceptional opportunities to engage with industry professionals. Opportunities may include employer mentoring, working on client briefs, mock interviews with employers, industry events and skills competitions.
We also run a wide range of Industry Careers Days where various industry leaders visit the College to share their knowledge and experience. You will have the opportunity to ‘ask the experts’ questions about their field, as well as being inspired by their journeys and gaining advice to help you achieve your goals
