This varies according to the qualification although, in the end, it is Enable College’s responsibility to ensure you have access to a suitable placement. With Individual Support qualifications, Enable College has specific agreements with organisations and will organise your work placement. With Childcare qualifications we have to manage things a bit differently as the Directors of the Childcare Centres generally want the student to approach the Centres themselves. This provides an opportunity for the Director to meet with the students to check their communication skills, attitude, and organisational skills prior to work placement. Enable College will provide students with an introductory letter and advise which centres to approach. Please note that all placements in all qualifications will be during Monday to Friday and the shift times will be allocated by the organisations hosting the work placement. Enable College will support you but remember the organisation is hosting you and they will have the final say on work times and placement agreements.
