Work Placements

Students will spend a minimum of 45 days with an external employer in a role directly relevant to their course. These placements are designed to give our learners a competitive edge when applying for apprenticeships or employment, and Derwentside College is fully committed to helping learners progress into sustained employment after their time with us.

These industry placements will give eligible students a valuable opportunity to put their learning into practice, develop their technical skills and become more employable.
