Work Placements for BTEC Students

Produced by the Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS), this case study addresses the themes of employer engagement and careers in STEM. From Newcastle-under-Lyme College looks at the development of work placements for BTEC engineering students within local companies.

Such placements are beneficial as they help to give reassurance that there are viable career opportunities within the local economy and give students a better understanding of the application of engineering in real-life situations.
