Placements are aimed at providing students with a wide range of client problems, age ranges and clinical settings. They are designed to equip students with a range of professional skills and to develop an awareness of professional issues. The placement program and requirements will be worked out jointly by the student, the placement coordinator and the practitioners supervising the placement. Contracts will clearly specify the skills to be taught and the responsibilities of the student and placement supervisor. It is expected that in all placements students will have experience in assessment and therapy.
