Work Placements that Succeed: 

Developing Learners Beyond the Curriculum


In this day-long workshop, delegates will learn about the ‘active ingredients’ in work placements: what enhances learning, develops learners’ skills, and engages employers. We will learn about how to develop and support placements and manage the risks. We will work on the whole process from approaching employers to post-placement review. Delegates will receive a Quality Assurance Framework to use, a list of resources for follow-up and will complete their own action sheets. It will be a very active day, with lots of discussion and shared exercises.
