In Placement 4 students are offered the choice between working at early stages (Nursery/P1, or P2 or P3) or middle (P4, P5) or upper (P6, P7). In Placement 4, students need to demonstrate that they are developing further professional knowledge and understanding, increasing abilities and sound professional values. The context provides increased time, and increased opportunities for independent action, to address these aspects. By the end of Placement 4, students should feel that they have been suitably challenged in preparation for their induction year. key feature of this placement is that students undertake a piece of research called the ?professional project=.
