The umbrella term ‘work placement’ encompasses a myriad of greatly differing experiences. The key to navigating an appropriate course through all the possibilities and identifying what most closely fits your requirements and aspirations is to ask yourself a series of questions, not just about the nature of the work you seek, but also the timescale, environment, benefits and general practicalities. This chapter will offer some guidelines on how to decide what is best for you.
