Workplace Education Activity- Information for Staff

Workplace Education Activity- Information for Staff

Workplace Education Activity is the term used by the University of Lincoln to refer to the wide variety of work-related activities that students might undertake.

The information in this section has been created to support staff across the university to include and manage workplace activities within and outside of the curriculum.

Because the nature of workplace education activities varies considerably, as does the responsibilities of the student, university and the organisation, it was considered that a guide and supporting documents would be a beneficial resource for all staff.

Further down this page, you will find the Workplace Education Activity – Best Practice Guide, amongst other materials that will support you. Find out more about the Guide in the below video, and then scroll down to access the documents.


The material contained below is to support staff within the university to:

  • Define the types of workplace education activities their students are engaged in.
  • Understand the minimum requirements, responsibilities and processes for each type of workplace education activity.
  • Have access to a set of ‘suggested’ best practice and minimum standard documents to support them to build the whole spectrum of workplace education activities into their programmes.

Health and Safety Briefing for Students Entering Workplace Education Settings

In most workplace education situations, the University has responsibility to provide students with a health and safety briefing prior to the experience commencing (see Workplace Education best practice Guide for more details).

This briefing can be general, with the organisation being responsible for providing a more detailed and specific health and safety briefing for its own setting. 

To support you in providing this, the Workplace Education Group along with a media production student has created a health and safety video below that can be shared with students:
