Student Placement Workbook
The student keeps this document with them while on their placement with you. More than just an induction handbook, it is a place for student to record what they are learning about themselves and the world of work.
Insight workbook one: All about me
This workbook provides guidance for supervisors about how to find out what the strengths and weaknesses of the student are, and what they're interested in. This lets supervisors build up a profile of the student.
Insight workbook two: Look behind the scenes
This workbook offers a fun way to make the student aware of the wide variety of opportunities in your business, and help match them with these on the basis of the student's profile, identified in the All about me session.
Insight workbook three: 'Careers happen'
This workbook guides the student through interviewing a colleague about their career and creating a fun visual representation of that career journey. It teaches students that they will need resilience and adaptability to navigate their way through a successful career, and also illustrates how careers often develop opportunistically.
