Over the last two years, many employers have been offering industry placements – an extended period of structured time that a student spends in the workplace, developing real skills and making a meaningful contribution to the organisation.

Industry placements will be a fundamental part of T Levels – a new course designed by employers for 16-19-year olds, which combines classroom learning with a substantial placement.

What might this look like in the current circumstances?

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

There will also be a chance to hear from two high-profile employers who have already been offering placements.
