Work Placements for Languages Students: A Transformative Experience
Organ, Alison
A work placement module is compulsory in the second year of most degree programmes at York St John University, as part of an institution-wide strategy to embed employability in the curriculum. As most languages students spend their second year studying abroad, the Languages in the Workplace module was designed in such a way that the setting up of the placement is carried out on the student's own initiative. This case study reports on how the module works and what the students feel they gain from it. A short list of references and links is included.
