The LAHP Placement Event on Monday 3rd February, 5.30 – 8pm, at the V&A provided information about the LAHP Placement Scheme and the chance to meet with representatives from a range of organizations able to offer placement opportunities to LAHP students. Short talks focused on:

- the skills, knowledge and experience you can gain through a placement to enhance your research and your future career;
- first-hand experience of a placement;
- the application process for the LAHP Placement Scheme, and to the Funding Extension scheme to provide up to six months’ funding to support a placement.
The talks were followed by time to meet representatives from a wide range of organizations able to offer placement opportunities to LAHP students. The LAHP team was also available to answer any queries about the LAHP Placement Scheme.
