Congratulations! You have a bright young student joining your team. To set you both up for success during their time with you, we recommend having a ‘ways of working’ conversation - talking through the key ways in which you want to work together.
In this meeting, we suggest you cover off:
Goals for the placement
How you will give feedback to each other (i.e fortnightly feedback sessions)
Typical working days (and hours)
How to handover work each week
Any upcoming events you would like them to attend
Anything that would be helpful for them to know about you and your team.
We suggest you revisit this list monthly to make sure you’re getting the most out of your student and your time together.
