Industry placements for students with special educational needs or disabilities
There is no charge to attend this webinar.
An industry placement is an extended period of structured time that a student spends in your workplace, developing real skills and making a meaningful contribution to your organisation.
Many employers are already offering industry placements, which 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 industry placement (at least 315 hours).
Many employers are already offering industry placements, including to students who have special educational needs or disabilities (SEND). How can you best support these students to succeed in the workplace?
