Please also read the advice on the Working Time Directive, available on the Policy Library page. This gives important information about the total number of hours you may work in a week.

Please report sickness absence as soon as possible when you know that you will be unable to attend your placement because of sickness. If you are going to miss placement due to sickness or any other unplanned absence then contact your placement, especially the CPC and the mentor you are with, and please also complete the online Student Absence Form. You can find the form and guidance on reporting absence in the Placement Information.
