PLU

Placement Team

Placements are a key part of our programmes. That's why we have a special team to work with our practice partners and support our students while they are on placement.

The Faculty of Health Sciences placement team work with our practice partners to support students' practice-based learning. We act as a link between the Faculty of Health Sciences and our placement providers. Placements are in a range of contemporary healthcare  and social work settings and include acute, community, public health and long-term care environments. 

We allocate students' practice placements and provide administrative and academic support to departments for programmes that involve practice experiences. The placement team also produce guidance to support students and practice staff for practice placement related issues which can be found in the following sections.

Raising practice concerns

Students spend 50% of their programme in practice so it is important that this experience meets the standards required by both professional and funding bodies such as the Nursing and Midwifery Council and Health Education England (working across Yorkshire and Humber).

Ensuring the quality of the practice experience is a joint responsibility between the practice provider, the student and the University. One way this is achieved is through the audit process where practice, the student and the university link lecturer come together regularly to review the learning experience, look at examples of good practice and consider any actions for future development. The audit tool used can be found on the Yorkshire and Humber Health Education England website and the process is outlined in the audit process document.

We have provided a page should you need to raisie a concern that will provide you with advice and contact details for helping yourself, a friend or family member with life and academic issues . Remember, there's no 'right' or 'wrong' reason to access the Health and Wellbeing Service.

Practice experience evaluation and reporting of practice concerns

Another important way practice providers, the student and the University develop the quality of practice is through student evaluation and reporting of any concerns. Below are links to the processes used in the Faculty of Health Sciences.
