Bank Holidays

Programmes are designed to try and avoid placement activity scheduled on bank holidays however this is not always possible. Students are not expected to work on bank holidays but where possible should try to ensure that they are scheduled to work sufficient hours on the remaining days of the week (where service provision allows).

Students may opt to work on bank holidays and should record this on timesheets as a normal working day.

Students should remain mindful of the need to complete minimum hours for their programme of study and ensure that they are providing themselves with every opportunity to do so.
