Farnborough College of Technology works with a range of employers who provide partnerships, work experience and apprenticeships. Most importantly, the college values the views of employers on ensuring the curriculum meets their needs so that our students go out into the workplace with the knowledge and skills to be industry-ready.
The College invites employers into the College to seek their views via an Industry Committee which is held biannually. We appreciate the input that employers give and we ensure curriculum planning embraces the comments made. Industry Committees will feed into an Industry Board where representatives of each programme area come together to discuss the overall plan for recommendation to the Corporation Board.

This is due to those businesses not being able to offer students an appropriate work experience setting, usually because their business is run from home or while travelling. Our Communication Centre is the solution for students who wish to work for a small business!
