Preparing for placement

During these unprecedented times we have taken the time to listen and understand the concerns of our centres and learners. Based on this, we have created a pre-placement programme for learners who may not be able to access their placements due to the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

The preparing for placement programme will be a useful tool for learners to work through whilst waiting for a suitable time to begin their placements or re-enter settings.

We have created separate programmes for learners in the following sectors: early years and childcare; health and social care; and, supporting teaching and learning. Find the programme suitable for your learners on the individual sector pages linked below.

Health and social care

Supporting teaching and learning
