Information for placement link staff at the University


Guidance for University staff who are supporting specific placement areas across the Three Counties School of Nursing and Midwifery and the School of Allied Health and Community.

This page is for university staff who work with students on placement and with our placement colleagues in some capacity.  For example, zoned academics, link tutors, university practice educators, academic assessors etc.

Student placement allocations are accessed through the ARC PEP (Practice Environment Profile) tool. Your PEP username is your University email address.


Help and support

Details on how to access PEP and view allocations are below.  More instruction manuals will be added over the next year.

Request PEP access 


If you need access please contact Work Based Learning Support Office (WBLSO) stating your role, the course name, and the name of the placement areas you support.

Requests for student information, submission of EU directive forms should be emailed to our team address at
