Industry Placements in Technical Education Programmes: A Report of International Case Studies

Industry Placements in Technical Education Programmes: A Report of International Case Studies

Between November 2016 and March 2017, Gatsby, accompanied by college leaders and staff from the Department for Education (DfE), undertook study visits to explore how industry placements are structured in six technical education systems – Austria, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Norway and Switzerland. The study visits focused on placements that formed part of full-time technical education programmes for young people, typically aged 16 – 19. The purpose of these visits was to inform discussions about how industry placements are implemented effectively, and identify enabling features that could inform expansion of placements in England.
