Social Work Students
What contact will I have with the University whilst on placement?
Your personal tutor will attend the Learning Agreement meeting (described above) and will be available for contact throughout the placement. They will also be the first port of call should any difficulties arise. The university also arranges for a mid-way ‘Recall Day’ event, where all students return to university for a day to review progress and draw on their learning so far. This also provides a useful opportunity to touch base with staff and fellow students.
