Placement Opportunities for PTUK Students

Available Placements for PTUK Students  

Clinical placements are an essential part of training in therapeutic play skills and play therapy. They provide an excellent opportunity for organisations working with children to assess the effectiveness of these interventions in a safe way and at little or no cost. They are not intended as a low cost way of funding services over a longer period. 

It is vital that organisations providing placements observe the PTUK standards and that there is a contract that clearly defines the responsibilities of the trainee and the placement organisation that satisfies the trainee's clinical supervisor and the training provider.
