Charlie Ball, Deputy Director of Research at HECSU was presenting at this year’s PlaceNet conference. PlaceNet is a registered charity for Placement Officers and Tutors, employers and others concerned with student placements. PlaceNet represents professionals dedicated to improving the quality and value of student placements in a wide range of subjects.
Participants who took placements were:
1. Less Likely to be out of work than those who did just paid work or no work experience at all
2. More likely to be in a professional level job than someone who had just done paid work or had no experience
3. Not so clear for salary, although doing some work experience better than none
