Work Placements

Work experience and industry placements are a short-term experience of employment. As part of a student’s college life, it is imperative that we ensure they are ready for the world of work.

All of our Health & Social Care and Early Years courses involve some form of Work Placement up to 750 hours as part of their course requirements.

The videos below show some of our students taking part in work placements. Play the video and listen to our students and the employers talking about their experiences of work placements.
