The Scottish Further and Higher Education Funding Council is providing funding a for a new student placement programme, focussing on three areas -- one of which is IT. The e-skills placement programme, led by Edinburgh Napier University, will place 750 students in IT companies. The placements will last up to one year.
I plan to meet with Michael Kowbel, of E-Skills UK, to discuss how SQA can link to this initiative.
In the meantime, contact Michael if you want to know more about it.
