If you have already undertaken a placement through PPN please contact our team before applying for a further placement, due to restrictions on certain funding streams.
When and how will I be paid?

Our part-time placement opportunities should not affect or be affected by your funding status.
However, for longer term and full-time positions, please check with your funder first as individual circumstances and funding arrangements vary significantly.
