Autumn Greetings from PlaceNet


It has been a quiet couple of months for PlaceNet, as like our members we have been beavering away at the start of a new academic year. We hope you've made it through September and October intact and will start to see the fruit of your labour over the coming months. 

While we have been a little quiet on the website, there have still been plenty of discussions taking place over on our LinkedIn Group. It you've not already joined please do so, though access is restricted to individuals who work at organisations with PlaceNet membership. 

In May, Dr Lorna Warnock presented to our annual conference regarding a competency framework project she was undertaking with Dr Hilary Jones for the Higher Education Academy. Their work has recently been published and you can read the full report of 'Towards a competency framework for student work based learning' via this link

Once again, PlaceNet is pleased to be involved with the National Undergraduate Employability Awards. For the second year running, we have sponsored the headline award and look forward to presenting the prize to the winners of the coveted Top Undergraduate Employer category. There are also a number of Student and University Awards up for grabs, with the deadline to submit nominations Friday 7 November. 

PlaceNet will be at the Awards in London on 6 February 2015
