Supporting your placement

We are here to provide support for you when you are on placement and when you are looking for a placement opportunity.

Placement support

While you are on placement, you will receive:

  • A dedicated placements team able to respond to any problems you may be having
  • An individual tutor who visits you twice while you are on placement
  • Access to all the University facilities including e-resources
  • Preparation for return to final year

How is the year monitored?

When you secure a work placement, the office will make contact with your employer to complete a health and safety and risk assessment and to provide the employer with a placements handbook, which details their responsibilities.

When you start your placement, you will be allocated a visiting tutor who will come to your place of work to meet with you and your employer in the first couple of months, and again towards the end of your placement.

Throughout the year the will keep in contact with you to check on your progress and help you prepare you for your final year.

At the end of the placement, you are required to submit a placement portfolio containing your learning contract, a satisfactory employer appraisal, a case study an end of placement presentation. Your visiting tutor should sign this off.
