Workshop Outline

Placement provides a valuable opportunity for students in vocational and professional education and training (VPET) to gain practical workplace experience and enrich their learning experiences. Nonetheless, students are freshmen in the workplace and they may encounter different challenges. How could VPET teachers support their students during placement? This workshop will discuss the needs of placement students, introduce a coaching model and coaching skills; and explore how VPET teachers could support and supervise placement students with success.

On completion of this workshop, the participants would be able to:
  • describe the characteristics and needs of placement students;
  • explain the GROW coaching model and coaching skills; and
  • discuss the application of coaching model in supporting and supervising the placement students.
