Ward, Lisa J. and Gaffikin, Jane A. (2009) Student Placement Journeys - How journeys may change direction in a recession. A project based upon an on-line collection of video resources showcasing the development of students on one year work placements with views from their employers and placement tutors. In: ASET Annual Conference 2009: Proceedings of the 2009 Placement and Employability Professionals’ Conference. ASET, Sheffield, pp. 110-140. ISBN 978-0-9564559-1-8

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.
