Placement Opportunity- Hospice - for experienced third/fourth year
I have been contacted by an organisation (a hospice with whom we have well established links) that is looking for a couple of placement students who already have some experience of working with clients. Because this is a small organisation with demanding work then they would like students who already have or have had a placement and who have around 40-50 hours of prior experience with clients. They're looking for a year's commitment and are hoping for you to be able to take on about 3 clients.
I realise that if you already have a placement this might be a stretch but if you are interested in widening your experience or need more hours and have time then this could be a really valuable opportunity. Please contact me and I will pass on contact details for the agency.
From a second year student:
Sycamore Counselling in Nuneaton are desperate for people to work on their reception. This would be a good agency for anyone looking to complete their work based learning. They may have placement opportunities available from mid 2019 but that isn't guaranteed. If they do have placement opportunities, priority is given to people who have volunteered on their reception.
Their website is http://sycamorecounselling.org.uk/
