Thank you for your interest in completing your student placement with Uniting.
We recognise the need for students to gain hands-on experience that relates to their chosen profession. We offer work placements to both university and TAFE students for courses including Social Work (Bachelor/Masters), Diploma of Community Services, Diploma of Welfare and Certificates in Community Services. Other courses and disciplines will be considered where there is support from a placement supervisor.
Please send a cover letter, resume and information about your course of study to Student.Placement@vt.uniting.org.
We will review your request against our programs, availability and the requirements of the course of study. Should a suitable placement opportunity become available one of our Program Managers will contact you.
We receive a substantial number of placement requests, and there may be some delays in responding to you. We will endeavour to respond to your request within four weeks.
Applications do not guarantee a placement; all placements are subject to availability.
Appointments are subject to satisfactory criminal history checks, reference checks and Working with Children Check prior to commencement.
