Placement profiles

Never before have we seen such a fast pace of change and creativity in practice-based learning. There really is no such thing as a traditional placement any more.

Placement profiles: opening the door to a new future for physiotherapy students

We would like to capture and share the great practice and innovation that is happening within practice-based learning. This will enable us to:

  • Provide a platform to showcase this work and champion the practice educators who are thinking differently.
  • Allow members to see different options for placement structure and settings.
  • Give members the opportunity to learn from each other’s experiences.

Selected placement profiles will appear in this section of the website for others to view.
