Placement Learning Policy 2010
The Placement Learning Policy (PDF) is intended to provide the parameters within which placement learning will be planned, delivered and assessed. It sets out the responsibilities of the University, the student and the placement provider. The specific methods by which placements are organised will be determined by each faculty/school.
Quality Assurance Agency (QAA)
- The QAA Code of Practice: Section 9 Work-based and Placement (PDF) provides a set of precepts, with accompanying guidance, on arrangement for work based and/or placement learning.
