Call To Action- Student Practice Placements

Our profession needs your help!

With services slowly resuming across the UK, our undergraduate students have been unable to start their placements due to the pandemic. Whilst the universities have continued to offer virtual educational sessions with training officers, clinical placement still remains the keystone to their development and ultimately gaining their qualification.

We are looking for centres for our students for an 8 week block to deliver practice placement experience now.

Please consider- do you currently have a student? Could you accommodate 1 more? Could you work in partnership with another local service? If your service only has clinical cover for 4 days a week, that could still offer a valuable placement with the final day being self-directed study

If you don’t have a student- why not? With support, could you?

Please contact BAPO secretariat for further advice/support and lets get this co-hort through their training.
