Work Placements

Placements for work experience students on further and higher education courses.


"Thank you for the incredible learning opportunities you provided the University of East Anglia children’s nursing students on their recent two week placement at The Hamlet.  Every student I have spoken to has described this as one of the most amazing and beneficial opportunities on their course so far.  The students have provided examples of applying their learning from the school placement, particularly in communicating with children with additional and complex needs, into subsequent clinical hospital placements to the benefit of the patients and families in their care."


We welcome applications from students on Nursing, Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy or other related undergraduate courses who need a work placement working with children or young adults with disabilities and complex health needs. Applications from students studying below undergraduate level may be considered under certain circumstances. Due to the nature of our services we are unable to accept students under 18 years old.

Safeguarding Statement

The Hamlet is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and at risk adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment


Due to the high demand for places we cannot guarantee that we will be able to place you.
