All trainees undertake a range of placements across the College whilst on the scheme. The following pages give examples of where a trainee might work, but all trainees take an individual path through the scheme. There are many opportunities for placements in other Departments or Divisions not listed here; the scheme is flexible which enables it to best meet the needs of both the College and the trainee. Placements in specific areas of work cannot be guaranteed but the Scheme Director takes into account the preferences and aspirations of the trainee when allocating placements where possible.
