Support a placement

Leeds Beckett prides itself on delivering courses that are both at the cutting edge of current research and reflect the real world experience of work. Many of our students undertake placements – whether this be for a few weeks or a whole year, work-based learning is a key component for a lot of our courses, by offering placements you could get the freshest talent into your company, bringing with them an insight into current academic development in their particular discipline. 

Offering a placement to a current student means you’ll be giving them the opportunity to apply their theory into practice, and in exchange, your business will benefit from the new perspective and innovative ideas that a placement student can offer.

I enjoy sharing learning and my experiences of working in the NHS and supporting the development of the future workforce. I also enjoy working with assistant staff and seeing them develop within their roles and as a result of their experience, deciding to pursue a career in physiotherapy.

Offering a placement to one of our students means you’ll be offering your business access to the most current thinking and research that our students can bring with them – applying their academic knowledge to your real-world problems. 

Whilst developing my knowledge in a professional environment I gained the confidence to pursue a personal goal of working in asset and investment management, as a result of this and support from my tutors I have started an exciting career working for APAM.

One of the benefits is that we can advertise your vacancies directly to students and graduates through targeted emails or our specialist vacancy system – a great way to gain maximum exposure for your vacancy and organisation.
