Work Placement

Page history last edited by Norman Jackson 11 years ago

 

We take work placement to mean – a work context,for the purpose of intentional learning that is relevant to the aims and intended learning outcomes of a higher education programme or module, into which a learner is placed or places themselves. By ‘work’ we mean paid/unpaid employment or, in certain programme contexts, self-employment. 

 

The two contexts that are crucial to a work placement are:

·         Context 1: The learner is undertaking a higher education programme within which experience of a relevant work setting is considered to be important to the development of the learner;

·         Context 2: The experience of learning through work in the work place and support given to learning in the workplace setting, enables the learner to develop in ways that are consistent with the programme aims and intended learning outcomes.
