Research has shown that artists have indicated that they highly value the opportunity to engage in work placement in participatory and cultural settings as part of their training and development and regard experiential learning from active practitioners on placement through observation and mentoring as a valuable way of enhancing their skillset and experience of working in a variety of participatory and cultural settings.
Host organisations, who are active in offering work placement opportunities, as illustrated in the case studies below highlight the benefits of providing work placement both to their organisations and to the students joining them on placement.
This area of the website provides guidance for Host Organisations in the form of:
- Effective Practice Guides
- Case Studies (with links to exemplar resources used in the management of work placements)
