Supporting students with their industry placements

Our T-level students, George and Aaron, will spend 12 weeks working alongside the OfficeLabs team

What are T Levels?

‘T-levels are new, government-backed, career-focused qualifications for 16- to 19-year olds. They’re equivalent to three A-levels and are also backed by hundreds of British businesses, who helped to design the courses.’ – Tlevel info

‘T Level students spend 80% of the course in their learning environment, gaining the skills that employers need. The other 20% is a meaningful industry placement, where they put these skills into action.’ – Tlevels.gov

‘Every T Level student must complete an industry placement that lasts a minimum of 315 hours (approximately 45 days). This is to provide young people with the invaluable opportunity to put their learning, knowledge, and skills into practice in a real workplace environment. Industry placements also give employers unique opportunities to develop new talent and help young people become work-ready.’

How is OfficeLabs supporting T-level students

Our T-Level students are learning everything Power Platform whilst at OfficeLabs.

The main goal for George and Aaron is to develop an application whereby users can input information to populate an existing Microsoft Word document template, streamlining the process of document generation.

Power Platform apps

Recently, George and Aaron have developed foundational applications using Microsoft Power Apps. They have learned about the use of containers, how to create tabular forms, edit existing items, and everything in between. Over the coming weeks, George and Aaron will be using Microsoft Power Automate to begin populating Word templates, saving PDFs to document libraries, and sending notifications to the relevant users.

We’re excited to see the final product from the new Power Platform students!
