Placement Details

All candidates are required to complete a voluntary work placement within the leisure industry where you fulfill the role as an instructor and undertake a variety of outreach activities. The aims are to enhance:

  1. service provision for disable people by increasing staff awareness of disability issues
  2. the number of disabled people using the centre for leisure activities
  3. instructor experience and employability

Placement Agreement The student will:

  1. Accept an alternative placement when preferred options are unavailable.
  2. Start work placement after completion of qualification.*
  3. Complete the minimum voluntary hours as stipulated on each programme. 
  4. Comply with the company policies, maintain a professional standard and work towards achieving the project aims.
  5. Undertake the outreach tasks and upload evidence online.
  6. Aim to engage at least 10 disabled clients to visit and participate in activity.**
  7. Submit online tasks, client data and complete online evaluations.

*Delayed start only granted in exceptional circumstances and any medical reasons must be evidenced by a GP letter.
**Where students have no evidence of engaging disabled people into fitness activities, the duration may be extended beyond 12 weeks until minimum number of disabled people are engaged.

Breaching the agreement
If there is no valid reason why a student cannot complete the voluntary work placement we may seek to recoup the costs of the training directly from the individual. This does not include situations where an individual can evidence a medical reason for non completion. We aim to support all our students to complete the programme and will seek to resolve matters on an individual basis.
