Work integrated learning
RMIT University is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with workplace experience. As a student enrolled in this RMIT University program you will be assessed on structured activities that allow you to learn, apply and demonstrate vocational competency.
Work Integrated Learning (WIL) will enable you to apply skills and knowledge in a workplace setting.
You will be required to do a placement of 160 hours in a relevant workplace.
You will be required to source WIL options; however support in locating placement will be available by the program staff. All placement hosts will receive information from RMIT explaining the purpose of the placement and how you may be best supported by the host organisation. Staff will maintain contact with you throughout the placement and provide de-briefing and support as required.
Another integral part of placement is supervision, as it provides the opportunity to receive constructive feedback. You will be placed with a supervisor by the host employer who you will meet prior to commencing placement in order to discuss the expectations of the training. You are also required to meet with your supervisor throughout the duration of your placement.
One specific course in which WIL/placement activities will occur in the program is:
EMPL5958C Maintain an effective work environment (CHCORG405E)
A successful Police Check, and a Working with Children check is required by students to complete the practical placement or work experience component of this program.Top of page
