    Abstract

    Over the last two years, researchers from the University of Huddersfield have been following 14 students on their placement journeys. We have filmed them before starting placement, at work with their employer and in their final year with the tutors. The workshop will discuss the 'Student Placement Journeys' project and how the resources were developed. It will also explain how the economic downturn has impacted upon our students.
