Across Sunderland College, our students take part in placements and work experience. These placements and work experience opportunities are delivered in partnership with a wide range of employers and are important to our students and their wider learning.
However, at a time when our healthcare system and employers are under pressure to sustain business continuity, the College has decided to postpone all placements and work experience with immediate effect from all settings.
This measure will ensure that our students are protected from unnecessary risk and placement providers are able to concentrate on core business. The College is working closely with our placement providers and continually monitoring the situation. Students should continue to develop their wider employability skills through internal activities with progress against employability skills.
