What can SUCCEEDS offer to the students and to the universities? 

The Dearing Report (1997) stressed the value and importance of work experience for all students. 

In a competitive job market, students without relevant work experience are increasingly disadvantaged. Students with disabilities who have no work experience are doubly disadvantaged. 

SUCCEEDS aims to enable students to develop their potential and to increase their employability by giving them : 
 
arrow experience of the working environment 
arrow experience in a relevant area of employment
arrow a chance to demonstrate their ability to employers
arrow increased skills and confidence
arrow useful contacts for future employment and references

There are also benefits for the universities
 
arrow A successful placement can provide excellent publicity for the university and for specific courses
arrow It can demonstrate the university's commitment to developing students' potential in a supportive environment
arrow Student experiences of the practical application of theoretical knowledge can benefit the academic environment
arrow Students can bring back positive experiences of the employment environment to feed back into future class-work
arrow A placement can provide the basis and/or contacts for a future dissertation or project
