- ‘We provide students with the opportunity to put theory into practice, in real life situations. It is simple to read about how to deal with situations but things rarely happen that simply in the field. Furthermore, it provides students with the opportunity to experience the job first hand, decide if they like it, if they are good at it and how they would change it. It produces a more rounded worker.
- “Acting as a sounding board for the learner as they learn about themselves, connect their practice to theory and compare/contrast their learning environment with their own working experiences”.
