The primary objective of a placement opportunity, for a student or young practitioner, is to gain experience and build your CV (resume). Pay should be a secondary consideration. That said, some placements do offer a salary.


  • Placements (sandwich year): Also known as industrial placements. These are part of the degree programme, are for a full year, are advertised nationally and pay a salary.
  • Placements: Term used to describe any informal agreement between a volunteer and a supervisor. Length of service is negotiable, to suit both parties (eg one day a week, one week during university vacation). A salary is not payable, but students can often claim back travel expenses.
  • Adoptions: Term we use to distinguish informal placements from the formal, contractual 'industrial placement' that is a part of the degree programme.
  • Internship: Term used in North America to describe the range of workplace learning opportunities listed above.
