During the placement students will be required to:
(i) develop a profile of the organisation hosting the placement, and conduct interviews with expert practitioners(ii) develop a project/folio/product, outline a sequence of specified tasks, and assess the process and outcomes of the project and/or placement experience through written/oral presentations.
Two written assignments and one oral presentation on completion of the placement.

(i) A profile of the organisation hosting the placement, including interviews with expert practitioners related to the performance of the organisation’s conservation work
