About VET Placements

Work-integrated learning (WIL), also known as placements, is a unique form of educational experience that enables students to gain practical skills and knowledge within a discipline as a part of their study.

Placement units play an integral role in developing the concepts from the classroom by allowing students to gain practical skills and competencies while gaining valuable knowledge from industry professionals within a relevant learning environment, and across different sectors such as allied health, education non-government/community-based organisation or government.
