5.3. Debriefing

It is important to ascertain student views of a placement in order to assess its value in supporting students in attaining the learning outcomes. This can be done during the visit (see student self assessment form) and also at the end of the placement through a questionnaire or verbal debriefing session.

It may be necessary not to use certain placement providers in the future should the placement be judged to have been somewhat restrictive in enabling the student to achieve the learning outcomes or if there are other concerns.
