For their Level 5 (second year)
placement, a student may approach us with an organisation in mind to
partner with for a vacation placement. In this case, we need to first
learn a little bit more about the organisation, as we would with any new
partner organisation. We ask that vacation placement providers fill out
our simplified Vacation Placement Organisation form before placement
commences so that we can flag anything that might be an issue, such as
lack of Public Liability Insurance (see GETTING STARTED FOR VACATION PLACEMENT section).
Once we have the Vacation Placement Organisation form the student can complete the F5 - Vacation Placement Proposal
outlining what they will be doing on placement. It will require your signature to be authorised (we can forward the form to you). This is due two
weeks before the end of the term before the placement takes place.
For Level 5 placement, the student is required to complete 82 hours, which will be recorded on the F10(V) - Confirmation of Placement Days. It is best if they keep a record as they go so as to not forget any hours. At the end of placement the supervisor will need to sign this form, to authorise placement hours.
Once placement is complete the supervisor completes the F6 - Vacation Placement Assessment and
the student and supervisor have a conversation to discuss and sign it.
The F6 and the F10V should then be submitted by the first day of the
