Art & Design Placements: Employers
Student placements give you the chance to get an enthusiastic employee, up-to-date with the latest skills and knowledge. They can offer your company an extra pair of hands to help on a specific project or to help in an area where you may be short of staff. You can offer them the chance to use their skills in a real-life environment and can really contribute to their learning.
Placements should give students the chance to learn and should be challenging but realistic. It's important that the students are clear on what's expected of them as their performance will be reviewed. Placements are sometimes paid and it is up to the employer and student to settle the rate of pay.
The Placement Office can send you a selection of CVs to choose from – from then on, the process is normally the employer's usual application and interview procedure.
Students on the following courses can choose to undertake a placement lasting ten weeks during year three:
- Communication Design - Graphics / Illustration / Photography BA (Hons)
- Contemporary Art Practice - Moving Image / Photography / Printmaking / Sculpture BA (Hons)
- Fashion & Textiles Design BA (Hons)
- Three Dimensional Design - Ceramics and Glass / Jewellery / Product Design BA (Hons)
If you are interested in finding out more, or offering a placement opportunity, we would be very happy to hear from you.
