Student travel/car sharing arrangements

The Rapid Action Placement Oversight Group (RAPOG) have had a number of queries relating to students and travel/car sharing arrangements while on practice placement experiences.

A set of frequently asked questions (FAQs) have been developed which cover various aspects relating to supporting, supervising and assessing students in practice, with specific questions addressing travel/car sharing (see questions 14, 15 & 16).

Question 16 specifically answers the common query about healthcare staff who are commuting with students as part their learning experience.
