Making the most of your placement

  • We'll give you a briefing document, so you'll know all about your employer and you'll be ready to learn. Prior to your arrival, you'll have filled out a document listing what you want to know. So the employer will be aware of what you'd like to do.

    Our employers get special packs from us, suggesting the kinds of activities you might undertake. So you can expect to have a high quality, high impact work experience.

    But you need to make the most of your time with the employer.

    - Volunteer for jobs.

    - Listen closely to what is being said. Even casual conversations can contain nuggets of information.

    - Write up in a journal what you learnt each day.

    - Make the most of even mundane jobs. Treat everything as a learning experience.
