What is Placement PAL?

Placement PAL is a branch of PAL that specialises in providing  guidance around placements.

Unlike regular PAL (delivered by Level 5 to Level 4), Placement PAL Leaders are Level 6 Leaders that deliver to Level 5 students. This is due to the fact that they have already undertaken a placement and can impart their wisdom and experiences on placement related topics, as well as help Level 5 students to prepare for placements.

Each faculty runs Placement PAL in a different way, tailored to the needs of the students and this year's circumstances with online delivery is no exception. Those departments running Placement PAL this year will be incorporating the role of the Placement PAL Leader with existing placement support.

 

In the Faculty of Management, Placement PAL Leaders have been recruited to assist with STEEP work. For more information about STEEP, visit the BU website here.

 

In the Faculty of Science and Technology, Placement PAL Leaders from the LLS, AAFS and Creative Technology departments will be assisting Placement Co-ordinators Julie Gill and Georgie Blake with specific Placement Support sessions.
