Institute of Community & Society


We appreciate and would like to thank those of you who are out on placement or are due to go out on placement for working hard to support our placement providers in a challenging and unprecedented situation.

Your placements are being considered by the placement provider and professional body in negotiation with us. We will communicate the exact details on a course by course basis as soon as we have these. Please bear with us as there are many providers and we are speaking to all of them.

As you can imagine information and guidance can change at a rapid rate so we will update you on a regular basis and from the end of this week that will be through Canvas to your placement module to ensure that you are kept as up to date as possible. Please appreciate that we may not always have all of the answers that you are looking for but we will continue to seek advice and guidance in relation to any queries raised. We really are working directly with the placement providers, partner organisations and SWE to find suitable and acceptable solutions that will support and help you and minimise disruption where we can and current, ongoing work means we will begin the specific updates later this week.

Practical Work

If your current modules include practical elements then your module leaders and course teams will be working towards developing alternative modes of delivery or rescheduling the delivery for a later date. This information will be communicated to you on a module by module basis through Canvas. Where module assessments currently include practical aspects these too are being reconsidered and alternatives will be announced in due course.
