Work Placements

Work Placements for an essential part of the experience of many York College learners.

For some vocational students undertaking certain courses, work placements are mandatory. For others, it is a welcome add-on that helps to unlock doors to universities, internship prospects, next step academic programmes, apprenticeships and other employment opportunities.

Whatever your reason for wanting to know more, the Work Placement Team is here to discuss the process with you, answer your questions and generally help you to understand how we can enhance your educational experience at the College. We are an approachable, friendly team and look forward to working with you and enhancing your education to give you the best possible educational chances in years to come.
