Sickness and absence from placement should be reported by students to their allocated placement following the procedure outlined during their induction to placement. Any absence should be recording as such on the online timesheet and signed as being an accurate representation by allocated practice supervisors/educators.

Where students expect to be absent for more than 3 days, students should contact their academic advisors support and advice to be given in a timely manner.

Apprenticeship students should ensure the sickness reporting procedure of their employer is adhered to at all times.
