Extension to The Year in Industry (YINI) Registration Deadline

We currently have a high number of companies in Scotland contacting us to offer YINI placement opportunities starting this year, so we have decided to keep the YINI Registration window open to 2019/20 placement applicants.

These excellent placement opportunities will start this August/September (for 12 months) and are ideal for your School Leavers in S5/S6 interested in gaining relevant paid work experience in the following subject areas, before starting their degree or apprenticeship;

  • Architecture
  • Business or Finance
  • Maths or Physics
  • Engineering (Electronics/Electrical or Mechanical)

What do students need to do?

  1. Register online via the YINI Website*:

*It’s free for students to register and the simple online form takes about 10 minutes to complete.  The YINI Team will then be in contact to take the Student through the next steps. Students must have the Right to Work in the UK (we will provide guidance on the acceptable documentation)

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me and we look forward to hopefully some of your students taking up these excellent opportunities.

Many thanks for your continued support to EDT’s YINI scheme,

Kind regards
