PYB301 Psychology in the Community: Placement

Unit synopsis

The aim of this unit is to enable you to develop your work-literacy and work-readiness, by providing opportunities to apply psychological knowledge in workplace contexts, supported by activities that promote critical reflection on your learning and workplace practices. Your participation in this unit requires you to establish, conduct, and complete an approved period of volunteer work or placement. You may be asked to produce a Blue Card (suitability for working with children and young people clearance) before commencing your work placement and it is therefore your responsibility to have obtained this clearance prior to commencing your placement.
