This provides an opportunity to promote health professions to the youth of today who may become your workforce in the future. It also gives students the chance to observe a workplace and learn about the jobs available within the Health industry.

Secondary Student Placements

Each year Austin Health places secondary school students from within the local community for work placement. This provides an opportunity to promote health professions to the youth of today who may become your workforce in the future. It also gives students the chance to observe a workplace and learn about the jobs available within the Health industry. This assists these individuals as it helps them to decide which career path suits them best.

 

Austin Health is partnering with the Banyule Nillumbik Workplace Learning (BNWL) organisation to facilitate our placement program into the future and ensure successful placements. There are two programs available:

 

  1. Work Experience - Targeting typically year 10 students. Placements are available in one-week blocks.
  2. Structured Workplace Learning Programs - Targeting mainly year 11-12 students. These placements allow students who are part of the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) program or Vocational Education and Training (VET) program to acquire the skills and knowledge in an industry setting. This enables students to apply theory learnt in the class room in a practical way.
