Support a placement and inspire the next generation

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.

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.

Access new talent and skills

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. 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.

It's extremely important to work for real clients during my course as I have the opportunity to get valuable experience and insights into what it truly means to work in the industry.
