Work Experience Placement Pilot Scheme

In preparation for the delivery of T Level qualifications, Bury College has been running a pilot scheme with support from the Department for Education and working closely with local employers to offer 45 day work experience placements to students:

“The business strongly believes in inspiring the younger generation and believed it was a great opportunity to offer a 45 day placement to an aspiring engineer. This placement benefitted the student by allowing them to develop new skills in an industry setting and increase their confidence. We look forward to working with Bury College in the future.”

Gary McClung, Managing Director of Hopefield Fabrication Ltd, gave a Bury College Mechanical Engineering student a placement opportunity to develop advanced engineering skills.
