By offering an Industry Placement opportunity, you would gain the extra support from a BTC student that is studying a related study programme for either 30 or 315 hours.
There are no upfront costs to hosting a student on a placement. Your business must have Employers Liability Insurance and be able to commit to supervising a student that is on a placement with you. Following successful completion of their Industry Placement, many of our students have progressed into paid work or onto an Apprenticeship programme.
In a survey of over 1000 teenagers carried out by the Career Colleges Trust, more than two thirds (67%) of those asked believe work experience is beneficial for finding employment. By providing a student the opportunity to gain valuable Work Experience you would be helping to improve their employability, a valuable quality in some skilled technical areas that are seeing a drop in the number of suitable candidates coming out of education.
My work experience was really fun and the staff made me feel very welcome. I now have a better understanding of how a dealership is run, and I found out about more than just the repair and mechanical side of things.

T Levels are a new qualification that form part of the government’s plan to transform education in the UK. Industry Placements are an integral element to the delivery of the new T Level qualification. Equivalent to Three A Levels, T Levels are delivered over two years, designed to combine on-the-job training with theory-based knowledge in the classroom.
