Julian Support aims to be a placement provider of first choice by treating our students with respect and playing to their strengths, interests and abilities.

We offer high-quality placements to a range of students from Colleges and Universities in Norfolk and Suffolk.

Julian Support has a rich tradition of investing in the development of students the value of which is demonstrated by the number of those who have gone on to work for us post qualification.

The presence of students offers our organisation a fresh perspective and opportunity to critique the way we do things. Students bring fresh insights and enthusiasm and staff enjoy having students within their teams.

We continually strive to identify opportunities whereby students are able to gain a breadth of experience and knowledge within a supportive and relevant learning environment. We work collaboratively with students to identify their own personal and professional strengths, as well as opportunities for practice development, whilst on placement and post qualification. 

These are just some of the features that we offer our students on placement:

  • Internal training opportunities
  • Opportunity to co-design their placement programme
  • Experience of working directly with internal and external professionals
  • Work across a range of services to get a breadth of experience
  • Supervision and informal mentoring
  • Opportunity to undertake research projects
  • Opportunity to deliver information sessions to staff


The Norfolk Care Awards showcase excellence and demonstrate a commitment to delivering quality care and support services across Norfolk.

We are pleased to announce that we were highly commended in the Norfolk Care Awards 2016 in the 'Most Supportive Employer (Student Placement)' category. This category recognises organisations that have gone above and beyond to support the student and provide a rich, diverse learning environment and opportunities.
