Working along-side your course and work experience

This will mean you are able to maximise your development and learning, and can expand on the opportunities given to you in the work place and in the classroom.
  • You will be expected to undergo work experience as part of your course, please take time this summer to think about where you would like to go, and which skills you would ideally like to develop.
  • Your course tutors will give you further information about industry placement and work experience in September, in the meantime if you have any questions please drop the Employability Team an email on
