According to recent surveys 75% of graduates who had recently graduated, advised us they were already in employment and/or going onto further study. A further 22% were work ready.

Students studying at WelTec achieve qualifications that enable them to enter the workforce, i.e. graduates are work-ready. 95% of WelTec students undertake work experience as part of or while studying for their qualification.  The integration of work experience with academic study is a key feature of WelTec’s programmes.  Having real hands-on experience with industry while students are studying means students’ learning is greatly enhanced.  Many of WelTec’s students go on to work for the employers they have been placed with while they are studying.
