Applying for Chrysalis placements can be a daunting experience: it’s just like applying for a job.
When studying with Chrysalis, you’re not alone – we can help you find the perfect placement, all you have to do is ask!
What We Can Do:
1) We can supply in depth information about the course so that the placement provider understands what you are studying and the requirements of the course. This means that you’re less likely to end up on a placement that’s not suitable due to miscommunication or misunderstanding on the part of the provider – we’ll make sure they know what you need from them!
2) If the placement provider requires further information to this, Chrysalis can arrange for a member of the Chrysalis team to contact the placement to talk through the requirements. If they’ve got questions, we can handle them for you so that you can be confident that the placement you undertake will definitely fit the requirements of the course, and you won’t waste your time.
3) Chrysalis are currently collating a list of placements, which get published on our website with information on how to apply. We’re also looking to launch a student space on the website, where ads will be published. Of course, you can find your own placement, but if you apply to any on our list, you’ll know you’re doing an appropriate course straight away (and negate the need for items 1 & 2 in this list – Bonus!).
4) For Autumn 2016 Chrysalis will produce a guide on finding a placement with all of the top tips to help you find your ideal placement provider. If you’re not sure where to begin when it comes to finding your placement, you’ll be able to check out our handy guide for all the advice you’ll need.
Please remember that it is down to the student to find a placement. We can help out, but we can’t be there in your interview!
If you have any questions then please feel free to get in touch via email or phone, and one of our helpful team will give you all the advice you’ll need.
