OFF-SITE WORKING

WORK PLACEMENTS
Definition: A Work Placement is the placement of a student with an outside employer, in the UK or abroad, for a definite period of time, as an integral part of their academic course.

Risks: It is the placement providers responsibility to assess and manage the risks associated with the placement however the UCL academic supervisor must take reasonable steps to ensure that this has been undertaken and that control measures have been implemented.

If the work placement is abroad the following factors must be considered prior to acceptance of the placement:

  • the social and political situation of the destination. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office may advise against travel to some countries and regions. If you decide to disregard this advice UCLs Insurance provider may not provide cover.
  • immunisations that may be required in advance of taking up the placement. Some immunisations must be administered weeks in advance to be effective.
