New toolkit to help with student placements

We have published a toolkit of information to support placement providers, students and centres to support the safe return of students to placements.

The HNC Social Services and HNC Childhood Practice are both qualifications with a practice placement element. Due to COVID-19 restrictions many students have been unable to begin the practice element of their course.  

This toolkit provides guidance and links to more information to support the safe completion of the placement element where possible. It also contains links to risk assessment tools, current national guidance, frequently asked questions and an example contract.

The toolkit was developed in partnership with the Scottish Qualifications Authority, Scottish Government and the College Development Network.

We will update the toolkit as restrictions, advice and guidance change.
