    What are industry placements and T Levels?

    Industry placements are part of the new T level qualifications;

    During a 2-year T Level programme, students develop the core knowledge and skills they need for entry to a range of occupations in engineering and manufacturing.

    Industry placements are an important part of the course. They offer an extended period of structured time that a student spends in your workplace, developing real skills and making a meaningful contribution.
