Getting the most out of a placement

We offer guidelines, to ensure that students and employers make the most of the placement:

  • Allow the student to become fully involved with the work of your organisation as a valued and respected employee
  • Offer students a range of situations which will assist in the development of practical and personal skills
  • Provide the University of Worcester, and the student, with clear details of terms and conditions including hours of work and rates of pay
  • Provide a clear role for the placement student with real work, giving them their own responsibilities
  • Appoint a placement supervisor for the student, who will give regular feedback to the student, and be available to meet their placement tutor at a mutually convenient time
  • Comply with legislation, such as liability insurance and health and safety policies
