‘I’ll take some students’ - Tools you can use to run high quality student placements Webinar

This presentation is designed to help exercise professionals run high quality student placements. 

A large proportion of health and exercise professionals report barriers to taking students on placement. Potential barriers include:
- ‘I feel like I need more supervision training’;  
- ‘I’m worried about keeping the student engaged and interested’; and
- ‘I don’t have enough time’.

However, it's well documented in research that hosting students on placement can offer lots of benefits, for both exercise professionals and their workplaces. Benefits can include attracting new staff, retaining existing staff, and even improving skills that help with career progression (like communication and management skills). 

In this presentation we'll break down some of the most common barriers to taking students on placement. You’ll learn about three evidence based methods that you can use to increase your student supervision skills, keep students on-track, and to generally make the process of hosting a student on placement more manageable. 

Topics covered include how to:
- ask good questions (that turn student observations into learning);
- keep students engaged (including for the times when you need to do something else and you can’t be right there by their side); and
- use peer assisted learning (to help with hosting more than one student on placement at a time). 

Whether you’re new to supervising students on placement, or have hosted students before, this webinar will give you tools that you can use to improve the placement experience for yourself and the students you host.
