Placement may be commenced during the delivery of the course; however, practical assessment for each Unit requiring placement will be conducted once the learning has been completed and theory assessments are deemed Satisfactory.

If the student is not already working in a position relating to this area of study, Qii will be able to assist in finding the placement. The Institute will first try to place the student with one of the signed placement partners if a suitable position is available, or alternatively we can provide additional guides and information packs to assist the student in securing their own placement. A Trainer from the institute will visit and assess all potential placement hosts and conduct a quality assurance assessment and complete a facilities checklist before signing an agreement.
