Planning Students to Take Part in Work Shadow Programme
24 March 2016
22 Final Year BSc students from the Bartlett School of Planning will be undertaking two-week work shadow placements in a number of major planning organisations throughout the month of May. These placements are organised through the Bartlett School of Planning's work shadow programme and will take place from 10th-24th May.
The work shadow programme aims to give undergraduate students a chance to experience what it is like to work in a sector of the industry that employs people with planning degrees. Students have the opportunity to undertake a two-week placement with a public or private sector organisation in London. Seventeen key employers from across the planning sector - including both private companies and London boroughs - are participating in this year's work shadow programme.

The two-week work shadow experience is bookended by two half-day workshops at UCL jointly run by the school's careers tutor Dr Tse-Hui Teh and Ms Patrice Ware as consultant from the UCL careers service. The first workshop covers transferable skills to the work place from students' previous experiences; professional and workplace etiquette; and goal setting. The second workshop shares the diverse work shadow experiences from the student cohort; opportunities that arose; and reflections on the next steps of career development.
