Speech and Language Therapy Clinical Placements

Welcome to our Clinical Placements' website. Thank you for your involvement in the placement education of the BSc and MSc Speech and Language Therapy students from the University of Reading. As we continue to develop this website, please contact Allie Biddle a.biddle@reading.ac.uk for suggestions of things to include.

 

Here's what our students had to say about their placement:

"I was able to be independent and take on my own case load to work through. I had clear tasks for each day which I was able to manage myself. The communication in the team was admirable and each team member strove to make each decision on behalf of everybody concerned".

"Both (SLTs)Theresa and Chloe were great at explaining to me what they were doing, why they were doing it and answering my questions. They also kept me on my toes by asking questions back!".

 

Here's what a couple of our educators concluded about their students :

"...was overall an excellent student who showed high levels of professionalism, sound knowledge and therapeutic skills and a good level of independence. She made excellent working relationships with both clients and professionals and fitted well into clinic and was a pleasure to work with".

"… worked very hard and took positive and negative criticism well. She had a good work ethic and always prepared the actions that we'd discussed the previous week".

Being a Clinical Examiner

2018 Clinical exams

We will be sending out a request letter for clinical examiners early in 2018 for our May/June finalist clinical exams (dates to be confirmed). To be a clinical examiner you need to have had students on clinical placement for 5 years, including clinical placements in the last 2 years. If you would like further information or would like to express an interest at being an examiner please contact Allie Biddle a.biddle@reading.ac.uk or on 0118 378 4687.

 

Comments from Clinical Examiners from practice

"I really enjoyed the day; it was full on but very interesting day. I was very pleased to be paired with an experienced Uni examiner."

"I really enjoyed the experience of being a clinical examiner. It was inspiring to meet the next cohort of speech and language therapists and to see how much knowledge and enthusiasm they have. It was also a great opportunity to meet new people and reflect on my own practice."
