    What are the costs of an industry placement?

    An industry placement is an efficient way to bring in new talent and develop the skills you need as an employer. Apart from the financial cost of managing a student, industry placements should cost you very little. There is no legal requirement or expectation that students will be paid, as it is part of a course. However, you can pay students if you wish.

    Lutube视频 will support you and stay in touch regularly in the delivery of your industry placement, ensuring that everything is working well for you and the young person.

    An industry placement lasts for a minimum of 315 hours, which is approximately 45 days.
