The 'hub and spoke' model of placement learning began as an ad hoc arrangement. Now it has become de facto policy as student learners on placement are increasingly located across a range of different environments to take advantage of the various experiential opportunities that present. Most commentaries have focused on the experiences of those staff and students engaged on adult nursing programmes. Here we have adopted a small scale case study approach to get some insights into how the hub and spoke model actually feels for those people who engage with it in a joint learning disability and social work programme - students and placement providers.
