Progression routes for Students
During discussions after a recent OFSTED inspection, a number of tutors observed that OFSTED is getting very keen on seeing evidence of Progression and post course Advice and Guidance being given to therapists to help them enter the workplace and develop workplace skills.
One way is to show how you have directed students to work placements and job opportunities and organisations that can help them progress and develop after finishing their course. Clearly CThA is one resource, but it must also be evidenced that tutors do not show any bias and that more than one route has been offered.
One web-site that is independent of Professional body but supports the need for Professional Training and Practice may prove a useful addition to your Advice and Guidance notes. Why not point those students about to complete their courses who are looking for work opportunities and business support to: http://www.thehclub.org.uk/index.html
