  • FORM B - Business Student Placement Agreement - This is an official document which must be completed and signed prior to a placement commencing. This formalises the process, outlines the terms and conditions of the placement and ensures insurance coverage for students who are new to the workplace for the duration of the placement. All parties involved in a placement (student, host organisation and the University) must sign the Agreement.
  • FORM C - Attendance Record – Attendance records are to be completed by the student throughout the placement in order to track placement hours.  This form must be signed by the student and supervisor upon completion of the placement and emailed to by the student.
  • FORM E - Placement Evaluation - This is the form that the University requires host organisations to complete upon conclusion of a placement. An electronic copy will be sent to the host organisation by the Workplace Learning Officer.
