FdWT Student Work Placements

Posted: Tuesday, 4 June 2013 15:43

The Foundation Degree in Web Technologies Team has been working over the past months to negotiate work placements with Outlandish Ideas, a major London-based web development and design company. We are now pleased to announce that two FdWT students have been accepted on placements and will commence work in the coming weeks. One student will be working on a charity project; the other student will also be working on a charity project, but will, in addition, be doing paid work for one of the company’s clients.

Outlandish were very impressed with the standard of candidate that they interviewed and have expressed a keenness to offer further placements to FdWT once the current placements have run their course.
