Professional Learning Placements in Business
Professional Learning Placements (PLPs) are unique to St Mary’s and are not offered in any other school.
A PLP is a ten week programme, run once each term for four or five terms of the two year course (or twice for a one year course). During the placement the student goes to work for one day each week, in a business/industry. PLPs form part of the Professional and Access Pathways course provision. Students on the Academic Pathway can request to be part of the PLP programme and the placement can be linked to career aspiration or a personal interest.
