Work Placements and/or Internships

If students are undertaking a vocational program with us and can demonstrate commitment to learn and work, we will organise work placement opportunities for them. They are responsible for the experience!

Work placement is a student’s chance learn new skills and demonstrate how their classroom learning can be applied in real workplace conditions.

For higher-level vocational qualifications and subject to employer needs, students may be offered an internship, allowing them to opt for volunteer work within an organisation while completing their learning.

(Note: Internships are volunteer programs, Traineeship/ Apprenticeships are paid programs)
