1 November 201629 November 20169 November 2016I'm interested in is the calculation from the following for each academic year: (number of 1st year students x number of required placements per student) + (number of 2nd year students x number of required placements per student) + (numberPlacements required per student per year
Year 1 3 Allocated Placements required
Year 2 3 Allocated Placements required
Year 3 2 Allocated placements + 1 elective organised solely by the student.

The query further into Q d & e, this isn�t something that is tracked as such. We mainly work with partner trusts and so if a student is unable to attend an area allocated in advance then trust absorb it elsewhere within the trust. Then the area unable to take is looked into by academic staff and bought back onto the circuit as soon as possible. Any independent areas that are unable to take a student have various reasons and don�t necessarily come off the placement circuit
