Making Your Work Placement Effective: A Student Guide to Enriching Workplace Learning

The workplace is an important site for learning and can complement and support the learning that is experienced by students in universities and TAFE Colleges. This manual is designed to meet three sets of learning needs that arise during work placements: those of the student, the institution lecturer and the workplace supervisor or mentor.

For any student who undertakes a work placement as part of their further education, this guide will enable them to plan for and make the most of the work placement. It will help them to prepare, to monitor their learning and to evaluate the experience. The guide will also assist the lecturer in charge of work placement students, and provides valuable information for the supervisor within the workplace.
