1 PSP1 Preparing for PSP3: Types of Work Experience & Placements

2 Why think about PSP3 now? All students in Biosciences take the module PSP3 70% of the assessment is based on an 'employability portfolio' The 'employability portfolio' will include items such as: skills reviews (pre- and post-work experience); combination of self-assessment and supervisor/tutor assessment written work on professional experiences reflection on 'employability'

3 To produce these items... You need some 'work experience' This could take the form of: a 12-month 'sandwich placement' (this will also get you a sandwich degree) summer placements / projects voluntary work part-time work Venture Matrix or simulated work experience (these won't get you a sandwich degree)

4 12 month sandwich placement Start applying late summer 2013 for a 2014/15 placement Need a well written CV, evidencing excellent skills Placement opportunities will be advertised via Bb Students can also find their own placements Many 12 month placements are paid

5 Examples of 12 month placements What type of work can be done? Anything that has some relevance to your degree and is at an appropriate level: lab work (analytical, microbiology, pathology, synthesis, research etc etc) non-lab work (data management, clinical trials, medical writing, regulatory affairs etc) field work school-based placement

6 Are there limitations? job ad will specify the degree disciplines that are relevant to that placement there are placement opportunities for all degree disciplines hospital path lab placements require students on BMS if you find your own opportunity SHU has to approve it

20 Placements for 14/15 Who knows? Prepare well and you will find out!!

21 Other work experience for PSP3 summer placements / projects voluntary work part-time work Venture Matrix or simulated work experience You and a supervisor need to be able to assess your skills at the start and end of the WE using SHU paperwork

22 Areas of assessment: communication working with others improving own performance problem solving using relevant IT application of numbers working practice inc. knowledge, work skills, quality of work professional / organisational awareness

23 Summer placements / projects between years 1 & 2 and/or years 2 & 3 around 6 weeks in total (could be more) placement team will advertise opportunities you should also look for opportunities (company, university, hospital web sites) lots of useful information in this document: uments/find-internship.pdf need a named supervisor to assess performance

24 Voluntary work any discipline unpaid should be equivalent to around 6 weeks (may be FT or longer PT) any time during degree look for areas of interest / relevance to you Hallam Volunteering Hallam Award: award/ award/

25 Part-time work any discipline equivalent to at least 6 weeks FT any time during degree need a supervisor willing to assess your performance at start / end WE bar work, waiter/waitress, retail etc.

26 Venture Matrix SHU scheme enabling students to develop employability and enterprise skills as part of their degree experience/venture-matrix/ experience/venture-matrix/ likely to be between year 2 and 3 or during year 3 (depending on availability of projects / student interest)

27 Simulated Work Experience During final year of degree unpaid team task, contributing material to the individual employability portfolio development of a product (e.g. report, presentation, demonstration) of relevance to the team's career aspirations

28 What next? should discuss ideas for gaining work experience in your Academic Tutorial groups assessment forms (for pre- and post-WE self and supervisor assessment) will be on Bb contact placement team if you want to discuss WE further
