Industry Placement Experience

24th June 2019

We recently had the opportunity to interview one of our Level 3 Computing students, Marco Silver, who is currently on an industry placement with Delego, a support solutions company with bases in both London and Gravesend.

Marco said “I really look forward to going into the Delego offices once a week. I applied for the Industry placement scheme through the college and I was put through a professional interview process where I had to utilise graphic software to design a template for a business card.

The interview gave me confidence and a blueprint of how to apply for other jobs when the time arises. The type of work that I do at Delego includes creating business cards, brochures and invitations using graphics software such as Adobe Photoshop and InDesign. 

This industry placement scheme has allowed me to gain more skills and understanding in using the software and working within a corporate environment. I have learnt to follow briefs and am learning social skills and working to strict deadlines. “

We asked Marco what was next?

“I would recommend the industry placement scheme to anyone as I believe it gives you a fantastic chance to experience a working environment and increase your knowledge and confidence. It also informs your choices and what you think is the right path for you. I also think it looks great on your CV and is a real boost for future employment opportunities.

I now know that in the future I would very much like to continue with graphic design and website design, and it’s all thanks to North Kent College industry placements and the opportunities they have given me alongside studying a full time course!
