University College Birmingham is one of the largest providers of placements in the UK. Placements are administered by a team of Employability Tutors based within hired@UCB on the Ground Floor of the Moss House Campus.
The tutors aim to help students to obtain relevant work experience to complement their academic studies and to develop the appropriate skills, knowledge and experience to enable them to compete with advantage in the industries served by University College Birmingham.
Work placements provide a vital set of achievements, skills, understanding and personal attributes that make a student more likely to gain employment and to be successful in their chosen career.
Employability Tutors will visit some of the students and support their practical needs, including recording employability skills they develop as they gain work experience.
Resources offered by the Employability Team:
- Staff with detailed, first-hand knowledge of many employing organisations and the suitability of the placement opportunities available.
- An employer database containing details of around 5,000 employers, used by the staff who work closely with students to identify suitable placement opportunities. The database is updated regularly with feedback on the placement organisation from both students and Employability Tutors.
The team is available from 9am to 5pm each weekday and is based in hired@UCB on the Ground Floor of Moss House.
