Why do Internships and Placements?

Society for Research into Higher Education
Why do Internships and Placement Matter? Further Sharing of Current Research
Date - Friday 2 May 2014, 11:00-15:45
Venue - SRHE, 73 Collier Street, London, N1 9BE
Network - Network for Employability, Enterprise and Work based Learning

This session is run jointly with the Association of Sandwich Education and Training (ASET)
We had so much interest in our first special interest group session on placements and internships that we are hosting another session on the topic.  Feedback from our sessions has shown that participants would like more opportunity to hear about current research and to discuss it.  We have, therefore, asked some more of our members to talk about their research.  At this session the themes will be short placements, third sector internships, internships for postgraduate students and placements in art and design.  The session will begin with a challenge from our keynote speaker, Andy Phippen, from Plymouth Business School, who will talk on Placements and Internships: Opportunities beyond the Student Experience.
