Student Experience

The SP Hub is actively engaged in developing innovative, evidence-based, inter-professional and cross-sector placements for undergraduate students.

As part of the Enabling Effective Learning Environment programme [link], we have supported the development of partnerships for future student placements with our industry partners in the VCSE sector.

The SP Hub has led on the development of the PERCIE framework, a national framework for Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and Practice Education Facilitators (PEFs) to support student placements in VCSE organisations.

We have embedded salutogenic principles (i.e. focused on health-promotion rather than illness) in the Undergraduate Nursing curriculum, informing modules through guest lectures and including input into the ongoing nursing practice module.

Embedding social prescribing into occupational therapy e.g. placement opportunities for placements within the Hub
