Be part of the National Union of Students’ new programme – Placements for Good.

Do you want to be part of a new and exciting pilot programme? Work with university level students and increase capacity to progress sustainability.

We are currently seeking organisations and businesses who want to empower students from all backgrounds to innovate and progress sustainability through meaningful work placements. Join a network of organisations working to enhance partnership working with universities whilst exploring potential to make a positive impact. 

We will:

  • Take away the hassle of recruitment and ensure you are partnered with talented and highly motivated students
  • Support you and your placement student before (with pre-placement training), during and after the placement to make this a valuable opportunity for all
  • Work with you to design a programme of work that supports your organisation’s core business as well as increasing your capacity to progress the sustainability (environmental and ethical) impacts of your work. 
  • Placements to commence summer 2019
  • Applications open now

We are looking for organisations like yourselves to support this vision whilst benefiting from the fantastic contributions’ students can offer.

In 2019 we are working with Solent University Southampton, University Centre South Devon and University of Wales Trinity Saint David's.

Use this link to access an overview of the programme, how it works and what it aims to achieve. The cost for organisations is to pay students the national living wage throughout their placement, to ensure such opportunities are open to all students regardless of their financial situation. There is typically a membership fee for participating organisations, which can be discussed further.
