Industry Placements

Industry Placements give our students the chance to put into practice what they have learned. Students will spend a minimum of 45 days working for an employer in a role directly relevant to their course.

Through this they will gain technical skills, be more ready for the world of work, and have connections in order to secure a job after their course.

My British Airways Work Experience
by Natassia Ive

During my work experience I visited British Airways Headquarters, The Training Centre and Terminal 5. I had a tour of the Heritage Museum where I got to see British Airways history of 100 years, and how the aviation and the uniform has changed since. In the training centre, I got to see all of the simulators where the pilots and cabin crew train. I also got to speak to a lot of people in British Airways about what they do within the company and how they meet customer needs.
