What is an ‘interim’ placement? A half-way placement. Sometimes, we cannot always find the placement that’s right for you when you start the programme. If that’s the case, we place you on an ‘interim’ placement. ‘Interim’ placements are a stepping stone towards the long-term placement. We think it is better to get you a placement straight away to build up your confidence, rather than you waiting for your long-term placement to start.
