Work placement

Work placement is a requirement for this course

This course has a mandatory work placement component that all students must complete. South Metropolitan TAFE will assist students in finding a suitable work placement by working with our industry partners. Please be aware that industries and employers have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic which has meant that some work placements have been cancelled, put on hold or student places significantly reduced. While every effort is being made to work with our industry partners to secure work placements during this unprecedented time, there may be delays in students being placed. As a result of these delays some students may take longer than the expected time to complete their course. Lecturing staff will keep all students up to date, and will inform students if this may affect them and cause a delay in finishing their course.
