5.2. Placement provider contact

Provision of suitable placements is key to the success of any work placement programme and relies on placement providers offering and continuing to offer placements. It is only courteous to formally thank placement providers once a student has completed a placement.  An example letter is given.

It is important to obtain feedback from placement providers on the processess involved in work placement. Schools may wish to ask placement providers to complete a questionnaire on the processess involved in work placement to assess their effectiveness and where improvements can be made. Alternatively this information can be obtained by the visiting tutor (see visits).
