Placements are an integral part of our students’ experience at Norland College. Across the three years, approximately half of your time is spent in College while the other half is spent gaining practical experience in an early years placement. Our students work in early years settings in the Bath area. Settings typically include hospitals, nurseries, schools and family environments – both ‘living in’ and ‘living out’.
Having regular placements provides vital experience that will prepare you to deal with the real world scenarios you are likely to face after graduating. Having this wealth of experience in your toolkit is part of what makes Norlanders so instantly employable.
REQUEST A NORLAND PLACEMENT STUDENT
If you live in Bath and need an extra pair of hands, you may be interested in having a Norland student who is still training at the college on a family placement.
Are you a family with children under the age of 4 years who are at home full time rather than in any other childcare provision? Would you be able to host a Norland student for 8 hours a day Mon-Thurs for set weeks potentially starting from September and over the academic year? Are you able to support and guide the student with their practice and encompass a visit from the placement team?
If you would like to become one of our placement families please email your interest to email@example.com and we will be in contact with you shortly.
Families with multiples
We're looking for families in Bath with multiples for daily placements. However, if the family have accommodation for a student then we will consider families within an hour's drive of Bath. If interested please email us with your full postal address, telephone number, plus the ages of your children and you'll be added to our waiting list. Please note: being on the waiting list does not guarantee you a student due to the popularity of the placement scheme.
For Norland students to gain valuable experience of living in with a family, we're looking for families with two or more children in South West London or within an hour's drive of the Bath area. One child will need to be under the age of two at the start of the placement with the other under the age of five and the family will need a primary carer at home full-time. The students will do 11 hours per day, Monday to Thursday, with slightly reduced hours on a Friday. If interested please email us with your full postal address, telephone number, plus the ages of your children and you'll be added to our waiting list. Please note: being on the waiting list does not guarantee you a student due to the popularity of the placement scheme.
