Industry placements have been part of select Level 3 study programmes at KMC since 2018, they give students a real opportunity to gain practical, technical and professional skills.
Industry placements are different to work experience as they require a longer period of time in the workplace, students must complete 315 hours with an employer whose work is directly linked to the course that they are studying.
Since launching industry placements we have seen some incredible results, our students have been committed to achieving their 315 hours and many have gone on to get paid work with their industry placement employer.
Whether it is getting a job, developing practical skills or increasing self-confidence, the outcomes of industry placements are clear and also reinforce how much of a valuable addition they are to both the KMC curriculum and the needs of local industry.
