Guide for occupational therapy students
"I am delighted to welcome you to our Trust and hope that your practice placement with us will be an experience that will be both enjoyable and provide development and learning opportunities.
Across the Trust, Occupational Therapy staff work in partnership with clients, carers and other professional groups to help people take back control of their lives, and to help them engage in roles, relationships and activities that are important to them.
We are committed to practice placement education and recognise its importance in developing a workforce that meets the needs of modern and developing mental health services.
This online student directory contains information that you will need whilst you are on a practice placement with us. We hope that you find it useful and that it helps you to get the most out of your placement.
Helen Miles Head of Therapies
Our Trust accepts Occupational Therapy students from the following universities
Consideration is also given to elective students from other Universities and countries, depending on placement availability.
Students should conduct themselves and undertake agreed work in a manner commensurate with their student status, respecting the rights of clients and their carers. Students are also expected to co-operate with their PPE, OT staff and members of the multi-disciplinary team
All students should have a copy of their University Student Handbook, Manual which should be used in collaboration with these guidelines
