Free extended placement to support your business

From October 2019, students from Sunderland College will be taking part in extended industry placements.

The T-Levels will offer students a mixture of classroom learning and ‘on-the-job’ experience during an industry placement of at least 315 hours (approx. 45 days). These placements will provide the students with the knowledge and experience needed to open the door into skilled employment, further study or a higher apprenticeship.

The students will be matched to a host employer one day per week, between October 2019 and June 2020, to work within their business as an unpaid extended placement for the duration of the academic year.

Are you a business looking to benefit from free student support?
