Consultation on Guidelines for Practice Placement in CLD

The CLD Standards Council has been working with  students, practitioners and learning providers to develop guidelines for Practice Placements in CLD.   We would now like feedback on this first version to ensure the tone and the content of the Guidelines reflects the needs of the CLD field.

 

Background to development of the Guidelines

In 2013 a group of over 60 Students, practitioners, learning providers and employers met in Glasgow to participate in what was a very enthusiastic discussion around the Place of CLD Professional Practice in Scotland.  CLD Standards Council for Scotland committed to capturing discussions from that day and a working group including various representatives from Universities, Colleges, students, third sector and employers met a few times a year to progress the work and create the guidelines.
CLD Standards Council would like to acknowledge the hard work and commitment of the working group in getting this important document to this stage.
