Appeal for work placements in science-based industries

Added: 06 January 2020

As part of a pilot programme for the new T Level Qualification in Science (Starting September 2021) Exeter College are looking for quality science-based industry placements for students who are currently studying Level 3 BTEC Applied Science.

Exeter College are looking for all kinds of science experience but are particularly keen to find employers who can offer any variation of lab work, quality assurance, medicine, environmental concerns, animal welfare and forensics.  

Placements would be for one day per week and during college holidays where possible. Students will be carefully matched with their areas of interest in order to ensure a successful placement.

If you think you may be able to help or would like to discuss what is involved in more detail, then please contact Ed Sweatman, the Industry Placement Liaison Officer (IPLO) for the Maths and Science Faculty at Exeter College on: EdSweatman@exe-coll.ac.uk

If you don’t think you can help, Ed would still be interested in discussing other options such as taster days and careers talks.
