Project wrapping up

April 28, 2010

Over the past weeks I’ve been collecting the monitoring and evaluation data from the finalĀ  placements that have come to an end, and begun the process of pulling it all together into a final report. Initially I can say that the results of the entire pilot project have exceeded the best expectations of the steering group, delivering a resounding endorsement of the idea of structured and facilitated placements for students within the voluntary sector.

The final report will be published soon. In the meantime, links are now live to all placement blogs (click the link to the right to access the list) so you can read about the experiences that have been had by the students that took part.


Congrats Catriona – project scores a big result for one graduate

We’re delighted to hear the news that one of our first placement holders Catriona, who took part in the Samaritans placement, has just secured a full-time job at British Lung Foundation as their new Membership and Publications Assistant. According to Catriona her experience on her SHEEN Placement “almost certainly got me the job”.

We’re delighted for Catriona, and of course for the ringing endorsement this result brings to the pilot placement project.

Remember folks there are two placements open for applications right now until the end of this week (Dec 4th). See the earlier post for details.
