Industry Placements – Bridgwater & Taunton College

We at Bridgwater & Taunton College believe that Work Experience is invaluable to our students in helping prepare them for working world; giving them a good understanding of the working environment they are interested in as well as the opportunity to start building their professional contacts within their chosen sector.   On-the-job experience is something we are unable to offer students ourselves, and so we are incredibly grateful to employers for their part in helping our students get the best start possible in their future careers.   From 2020, Industry Placements will form a mandatory requirement for students taking new Level 3 technical programmes called ‘T Levels’.   To gear up for this, we are implementing Industry Placements in chosen courses from the start of this academic year 2018/2019.  We are looking to find employers in industries relating to various courses to offer our students a 45 day Industry Placement from October 2018. These courses are:   Automotive, Beauty Therapy, Business, Computing & Software, Creative Media Production, Digital Media Design, Electrical Installation, Engineering, Events Production, Hairdressing and Plumbing.   We are working with 215 students to support them in securing placements across Sedgemoor, Taunton Deane and the surrounding areas.   Industry Placement info for employers
