Host A Student Or Hire A Grad
Students in our Diploma programs complete an unpaid field placements ranging in length from 4 – 16 weeks. Student placement at a host site is designed to:
Provide the student with opportunities to develop new skills and gain knowledge, and confidence in applying their professional learning
Provide support and learning experiences to enable our students to successfully complete their program and to gain valuable work experience
Employers are asked to provide exposure to, and experience in, the areas of interest relevant to the student’s field of study, as well as an appropriate level of supervision to the student in all activities and tasks during the placement. Employers are requested to complete a brief, standard evaluation form provided to them, which assesses the student’s technical skill, professional conduct, and ability to handle the work assigned to them.
We recognize that it is through the endeavors of committed host sites that we are able to provide quality training for students in the field.
Eastern Academy Employment Specialists are available to answer any questions employers may have about hosting a student from our programs. We are also committed to supporting both the student and the employer through frequent communication, assisting with any issues and/or differences that occur during the field placement.
