Work Placement Programme

In National College of Ireland we pride ourselves on our strong relationships with industry. Accredited work placements are offered across 7 programmes and are a great way to facilitate collaboration between employers, students and NCI to benefit all involved.

Before undertaking a placement, students participate in a variety of career classes and events which include career planning, CV reviews, mock interviews and networking sessions, thus ensuring that they are ready to make the transition to the workplace.

The work placement programme is centrally managed by the Career Development and Employability team. The team provide a full service to employers from advertisement through to placement. 


What organisations do we work with? 

We work with organisations of all sizes across all sectors. Whether you’re a start-up looking to hire your first placement student or an multinational looking to hire large numbers of placement students, we have the expertise to support you throughout the placement process.
