Having an involvement in, or being responsible for, the process of risk assessing placements can feel daunting. The majority of placement practitioners are unlikely to be experts in the field of health and safety law or student welfare. This workshop focusses on establishing manageable, proportionate and appropriate risk assessment and due diligence processes for placement provision. Formerly entitled Risk Assessment and Due Diligence, this workshop builds upon and develops these themes. 

  • Are you confident in your risk assessment processes before placement?
  • Do you know what you should be doing in terms of due diligence in approving placements?
  • Do you know what insurances are required or advised for placements in the UK? Overseas?
  • Do you realise the extent of the university’s legal liability for all of this?
  • What paperwork and proformas can support your processes and help ensure legal compliance?

We draw upon the ASET Good Practice Guide for the Management of Health, Safety and Welfare of Student Placements, as well as the QAA Quality Code to assist placement practitioners with their decision making, question asking and escalation in this regard. It is aimed at university staff who work with student placements/work-based learning, whether new to the position or experienced and wanting a refresher/update, academic or administrative.

With a limited time available, and a breadth of content to cover, this session is predominantly lecture-based. A follow-up drop-in session will also accompany this workshop, usually within two weeks of the training.
