|Title||The Workplace Simulation Project|
Undergraduate students often seek voluntary placements in diagnostic laboratories in order to gain work experience to enhance their employment prospects. A combination of resource and legislation requirements limits the number of employers able to support such voluntary placements in the current climate. The Workplace Simulation Project is a summer course for second and final year undergraduates, which assists in the development of employment skills of those participating. The course is designed to include core elements of employment within the science and healthcare sectors, with generic aspects being common to all forms of employment.
