MAILING / EMAIL TEMPLATE

Hi [NAME]

Have you considered offering industry placements for students?

Many organisations are already trialling T Level-style industry placements now.  Industry placements give employers fresh ideas and input from the next generation and a potential pipeline of talent for their future workforce.  

T Levels, the new qualification for 16 to 19-year-olds who have finished their GCSEs, have been designed by employers and will combine classroom learning with a substantial industry placement.

The government has launched a new employer website and package of support, to help you find out more and plan and prepare to be involved with industry placements.

The website includes off-the-shelf tools, case studies from those already offering placements, opportunities for workshops, webinars and tailored hands-on support. 

Find out more here

There are a number of webinars and workshops taking place from 2nd April, to help you explore how industry placements might contribute to the development of your workforce.

The support is funded by the Department for Education and delivered by the Strategic Development Network (SDN).

Any questions? Please contact the industry placements team here.
