    With the onset of national lockdown restrictions in March 2020 because of COVID-19, HE educators found themselves needing to embrace new ways of working at short notice. One of the most immediate casualties of the lockdown were placements - one of the unique selling points of Leeds Trinity University - as employers were not yet up to speed with remote working so had to cancel hosting students on placement. This paper shares the alternative programme that was put in place for Journalism students to try to ensure they were still gaining valuable professional skills and development. It also draws some initial conclusions from the experience.
