What is a student placement?

Norland students spend around half of their training gaining practical experience in a variety of early years settings, including family environments for both daily and residential placements. If you live in and around Bath or South West London, you may be interested in hosting a Norland student who is still training on a family placement.

Daily placement
We’re looking for families living in Bath with children under the age of four who are at home full-time rather than in any other childcare provision. You should be able to host a Norland student for eight hours a day, Monday to Thursday for set weeks potentially starting from September or over the academic year. You will need to support and guide the student with their practice and host a visit from the placement team.

Families with multiples
We’re looking for families in Bath with multiples for daily placements, as detailed above, or within an hour’s drive of Bath if you have accommodation.

Residential placement
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 eleven hours per day, Monday to Thursday, with slightly reduced hours on a Friday.

The residential placement will run from 10 May-18 June 2021.
