Remote/Online Placements - Occupational Therapy

“I have been lucky enough to spend the last 9 weeks as part of the team at bOunceT. This organisation provides a wonderful service to people with additional support needs, their families’ and carers. I both did my placement remotely, which was a challenging yet rewarding experience.”

The way that Callum has made himself so accessible – despite being Director of the organisation and being a very busy person – mirrors the ethos, good will and forward thinking of bOunceT as a whole.
Through tutorials, interactions with team members, training and other learning opportunities we have developed skills and knowledge that will be invaluable as we now progress to working as occupational therapists. Despite doing our placement remotely, we were treated and supported as if we were in the office with the team.

On Site Placements (Stirling) Occupational Therapy

Coming to bOunceT as a final Occupational Therapy student has been a fantastic learning opportunity. The team were so friendly! From day 1, I was made to feel welcomed and supported. I got to meet so many wonderful service users and families. The best part about being on placement at bOunceT is the opportunity to really be creative about the different projects going on within the organisation. There are a few so you’ll never be stuck for work! The team really value input and feedback from students, so it’s a brilliant place to be!

My overall experience at bOunceT has now made me feel more prepared and confident within myself to transition from student to qualified OT practitioner!
Having been involved in the occupational therapy process with a range of service users, it has enabled to develop my own interpersonal and professional skills. I have been able to enhance my communication skills, both verbal and non verbal communication, which allowed me to successfully build positive therapeutic relationships with service users and families.

“I felt very welcome by everybody in the team. All the staff were willing and happy to answer any questions and give guidance. I felt my contributions were valued and acted upon and it was made clear at the start that the level of interactions with Service Users was however much I was comfortable with. I was given access to the online resources that all staff have access to which included the Team Knowhow cloud with a vast range of relevant information.”

Student OT, Queen Margaret University

“I have really enjoyed my time here at bOunceT due to having the responsibility to enhance service delivery and quality of my future practice through implementing a new and upcoming intervention (OPC) throughout the duration of my placement. As part of the OPC sessions and overall process, I have also had the ability to encourage each service user/parent/caregiver to modify, adapt and reflect up their OPC goals and for them, and myself to identify different strategies to implement in order to achieve their OPC goals.
Overall, this placement has given me the opportunity to understand the importance of play as an essential occupation in order for children and young people to understand, grow and learn about the world around them.”
