Courses with work placements
How it works
1. Find a workplace
The first step is to a workplace that is able to be the host organisation for your work placement requirement. If you can’t find a suitable workplace, we may be able to help you find a work placement position through our industry networks.
2. iTFE contacts the selected workplace
iTFE will contact your chosen workplace to ensure that they will be able to comply with your course requirements. We will review their supervision process, work health and safety standards and ensure that Australian Skills Quality Authority regulatory requirements will be able to be met during your work placement.
This process might involve a site visit to check the workplace is appropriate and able to comply with the requirements.
3. A ‘work placement agreement’ is signed.
On successful screening, a work placement agreement is signed by iTFE, the host organisation, and you. This document specifies everybody’s roles and responsibilities, the hours in which the work placement will take place and the total hours required to complete the outcomes of the specified units of competency.
A workplace induction is also organised so you can become familiar with the workplace and meet your hosts and colleagues before you start. The induction is usually conducted by the host organisation as part of your work placement agreement.
