AHP Student Placement Resources 

Resources to enable high quality student placements 

The Allied Health Professions (AHP) Faculty is aware that over the last few months, practice educators have needed to adapt and innovate to provide placements. We are also aware that clinicians have always developed great ideas on how to offer high quality placements which could be more widely shared. 
 
In response to this we have collated a range of useful resources to support clinicians taking students on placement. 
 
We are aware that there are many more excellent ideas and resources that could be included here, so please do contact the AHP Faculty if you have information you would like to share.
