Internship or Work Placement

What is Clinical Placement?

A Clinical Placement is a mandatory part of your course where you learn in a live work environment at one of our partner care facilities. You will be supervised and conduct practical training and demonstrate a range of competencies. The placement is conducted for at least 120 hours and will occur towards the end of the course. It is usually completed in 3 weeks. Timings for each shift will be negotiated with the facility once the time arrives for you to commence placement. Your assessment schedule will highlight what you need to perform and demonstrate in the workplace.

What are the benefits?

By undertaking placement, you will get a chance to put the knowledge you have learned in your course into practice. You will also develop practical, on the job skills and consolidate your learning. Placement is often the most rewarding part of a student’s course. Working face-to-face with clients and colleagues in your chosen field and seeing what you are learning put into practice is challenging, yet exciting and makes a large difference to your career confidence.

If you study with us you will notice the quality of our industry expertise by our clinical placements. You will be able to choose to be placed within our network of clinical facilities from 50 to 170 in-residents. In our largest clinical facility, you will be rotating with over 200 staff members and learn from them how to better care for residents.

Host organisation

You will need to undertake your clinical placement in an organisation involved in professional services such as a Group Home, Respite Centre or Aged Care facility. The host organisation will provide you with access to specialist equipment and resources. Your Assessor/trainer will help guide you through your placement period and will be in regular contact with you and your Workplace Supervisor. Some facilities may require your immunisation records. If not sufficient, they may ask you to be immunised.

What support will I get?

It is our responsibility to organise your placement. You will have regular contact with your trainer/assessor during site visits and you will be partnered with a workplace staff member and have a designated Supervisor while on shift. Students are required to make their own travel arrangements to and from their placement activity.
