Gregory Harrison studied Level 3 Engineering with CRC and upon the advice of his tutors, he found his own industry placement with a local haulage firm to support his learning and development over the summer break last year.
Once back in the College, the Industry Placement team liaised with Explore Transport, filling out the necessary paperwork and conducting review meetings over the 6 months that Gregory was there. Gregory completed all of his industry placement hours before Covid-19 struck and made quite the positive impact on the company during his time with them. Explore Transport have now offered Greg a full-time job, with in-house training, some of which will take place in Switzerland!
This just goes to show what hard work and the industry placement scheme can do. The opportunity has had a positive impact on Gregory’s career, while providing him with great life skills and practical exprience.
