I currently live in Bristol and have arranged my Level 1 placement after February half-term for 5 weeks. As I understand it I must do my Level 3 placement at the same school. I have not yet begun to arrange my Level 2 placement and have not found a definite school to take me. Unfortunately we have had several recent bereavements and me, my partner and our children (1 and 6) all need to move up to Lincolnshire to be near my mum and sister (autistic) as soon as possible. I intend to do my Level 1 placement as arranged in 2013 but then I'm considering my options. I can find a school in Bristol and do my Level 2 placement here (schools are hard to find in this area). I can then do my Level 3 placement with the first school (if they want me back!) in the autumn term of 2013. However, I am considering moving up sooner as my partner isn't happy in his job and as I'm going to be living up there I would like to get my foot in the door with a school in the area. It would mean finding a Level 2 placement in Lincolnshire and then spending 10 weeks in Bristol only returning at weekends to Lincolnshire. I have family I can stay with a lot of the time so only travel costs will be an issue and occasional hotel stays but I do have a bursary. The questions I have are: Do you HAVE to do the Level 3 placement at the same school? For example perhaps the school closes or something else unforeseen happens, is it possible to use a different school? I know I have 2 young children, I'm used to juggling things around a lot(!), but has anyone done this or similar themselves or can you see a way it could work? Or would you recommend we stay in Bristol until 2014?
