We will hear from students and organisations across the youth sector about how to deliver successful student placements. Join us to hear insights, tips and recommendations from supervisors to create the best scenario when offering student placements.

Information will also be provided on the Student Placement Project delivered in partnership with the Centre of Multicultural Youth (CMY) and funded through the Working for Victoria scheme.

The Project provides free, personalised support to youth-focused organisations to identify and develop placement opportunities that will add value to their programs and services, and give students an opportunity to undertake the placement they must undertake to complete their qualification.

For more resources, please visit our Host a student placement page here 

We will also have a Q & A where you will be able to ask questions or share your own experience!

When: Thursday 14 October, 2:00-2:45pm.

Where: Online via Zoom
