Step 5 - Placement Commences

 Students usually complete their required hours over several months, volunteering approximately 3-4 hours at various events throughout the year.

 We also offer student placements. This allows students to volunteer for 1-2 days a week for a period of about 4 weeks.

 Some students may prefer to complete their service during school holidays. Depending on the time of the year, holiday placements will be considered upon request and this will be discussed at the interview.

 Upon completion of your placement, a written reference will be provided to you for your portfolio.

 If you carry out service hours with ODAT you are automatically registered as a volunteer of ODAT and will therefore be included in any volunteer recognition programmes/events for that year. (please note inclusion is not compulsory)
