We appreciate greatly the extra value that students on placement can bring to the work we undertake with service users, and also consider that, by taking on students we are fulfilling our role to raise mental health awareness.
Social Work Students
We regularly take Social Work Students on 100 day placements, within the following constraints
BA Years 1 and 2 only
MA Year 1 only
Placements within North Kent Mind offer the following
In-house supervision and practice learning facilitation by qualified personnel
Participation on the North Kent Mind 2 ‘/2 day training course
A variety of work with groups and individuals, service users and carers
Access to the North Kent Mind specialist mental health library
Opportunities to share with and learn from other students on placement
By arrangement, a short “mini placement” within statutory mental health services
Feedback from past and current students indicates that a North Kent Mind placement can be a very rewarding learning experience.
Mental Health Nurse Placements
We are also happy to arrange placements for mental health nurses, especially where this is an active placement over an extended period.
