Supervised work experience within courses of post‐school education has grown rapidly over the last 40 years. A strong commitment to the principle of “sandwich” education has been matched in recent years by an increasing concern about how to manage the placement period to help the students involved to gain most value from the experience. Looks at the problem from the perspective of the academic institution. Specifically, it suggests an answer to the question: how can the academic institution manage the sandwich placement experience of students more effectively? Considers the application of a management development approach called action learning to support sandwich placement students and enhance their learning from the sandwich experience.
