Free industry placements
T Level Gateway

We are a T Level Growth partner for the Department for Education (DfE).
We are commissioned by the DfE to help SMEs to understand and offer industry placements to amazing young people.

What are T Level industry placements?

Many small businesses and charities want an extra pair of hands around the office, but don’t always have the finances to employ someone suitable. Other organisations want to develop a more diverse talent pipeline or struggle to recruit to their apprenticeship roles.

Similar to a Kickstart placement, a Traineeship or an Internship – T Level industry placements allow you to offer work to a committed young person for an extended period of time without paying wages.

As a T Level growth partner for the DfE, our job is to give SMEs free, impartial, advice about office-based industry placements. We then link you to a suitable school or college in your area, that has students looking to test themselves in the workplace.
