Here's what our students had to say about their placement:
"I would just like to thank you once again for an incredible 8 weeks of placement. I have had the opportunity to see so much progress of my clinical skills within such a short period of time. Receiving feedback from the both of you and positive comments from parents has motivated me to continue to work hard".
"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".
" H has done really well attending a meeting with professionals and the family and the support workers of a client of ours. H was really confident in the meeting and was very supportive to the carers who wanted to provide the best of care".

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."
