Over the last two years, many employers have been offering industry placements – an extended period of structured time that a student spends in the workplace, developing real skills and making a meaningful contribution to the organisation.

Industry placements are a fundamental part of T Levels –  new courses, starting in September, designed by employers for 16-19-year olds, which combine classroom learning with a substantial placement.

What might this look like in the current circumstances?

On Thursday 18 June, at 9am, the Department for Education and the Strategic Development Network are hosting a webinar for employers, giving an update on industry placements and T Levels, how they might contribute to workforce development in the coming months, and the support now available.

There will also be chance to hear from two high-profile employers who have already been offering placements successfully.

As a key intermediary, we would really appreciate it if you could please attend yourself and also forward this invitation on to any relevant employers in your network.
