Industry placements are an extended period of structured time that a student spends in the workplace, developing real skills and making a meaningful contribution to the organisation. They are also a fundamental part of the government’s reforms to technical education (T Levels).

On 18 June, the Department for Education (DfE) and the Strategic Development Network (SDN) are hosting an important webinar for employers, giving an update on industry placements and T Levels, how they might contribute to workforce development in the current circumstances, and the support now available.
