This book has lots of practical advice to help you get the most out of your work-placement – read it before you start applying!
This book contains good examples of experiential learning and the emphasis on workplace learning and the possibility to achieve a successful internship / placement is made very real. The narrative is most supportive to those anxious about their first placement.
A helpful guide for students to consult before, during and after their placements. The chapters are written in a very engaging style, both authoritative and friendly, so it is easy to put a great deal of trust in the advice being offered.
This book provides an interesting set of case studies which will be of benefit to those seeking work related learning and will certaibly be of interest to practitioners supporting them.
On the other hand, the lack theoretical positioning, in terms of work related learning, means that this is unlikely to be suitable for more critical readers
There is no other book like it, and it is very good. We run a course that is very similar to the course that Dr Carter runs and was used as the basis for this book. This book, therefore, covers exactly what we need. Work placements are incredibly valuable to students and having such a book, that outlines how to students experience them and what they should do, is vital.
Good information however not relevant for the intended course
