Host a Nuffield Research Placement: Provider Feedback
Your company or organisation can inspire the next generation of STEM experts!
The Nuffield Research Placements programme provides engaging, hands-on research projects, where Year 12 students have the opportunity to make a meaningful contribution towards the work of a host organisation through a well-supervised but independent research collaboration relating to an area of science, quantitative social science, computing, technology, engineering or maths (or a combination).
If you’re thinking of getting involved as a host organisation, there is no better way to discover the benefits of this programme than through our fantastic feedback!
Here’s how previous placement providers described their experience:
“I got some great feedback from the students at the end of the placement which was lovely to hear. One of the questions I asked was how they think the experience could be improved and it was unanimous, that only being face to face would have improved it. So overall, I would say that it was a success. They produced some really good reports.”
“On behalf of our team, I wanted to say thank you for all the support you provided throughout the selection process and the placement, and for your always prompt replies. Thank you also for the opportunity and we hope that the students learnt skills that will be useful to them in their future careers.”
The statistics are sensational:
“All teachers surveyed said they would recommend Nuffield Research Placements to future students, and 95% of placement providers would recommend Nuffield Research Placements to others. Teachers noticed positive changes in students who undertook a placement, with 96% reporting that returning students’ self confidence had improved. Meanwhile, 91% of providers saw developments in students’ abilities to interpret and report research findings.” – STEM Learning 2021/22 NRP Programme
