Offering short term work placements from 1-5 days provide great opportunities for learners to experience a wide range of entry level roles under staff supervision.  Traditional placements are valuable opportunities for learners, giving them insight into a particular career and the chance to start building networks.

Key Features of Traditional Placements

  • Learners gain direct learning in the workplace through work shadowing and work experience

  • Employers prepare a meaningful work experience programme and a final debriefing

  • Minimum commitment – initial preparation plus 1-5 day work placement supervision
