Get Industry Experience
Industry work placements are an increasingly important part of any higher education course. In a competitive global market, students graduating with relevant industry work experience already on their CV’s, will stand out from the crowd.
At TAFE SA, industry work placements are a key element of many of our courses. They give you the opportunity to build your professional skills while studying, as well as make valuable connections with employers in your field of study.
Over the years, many a TAFE SA graduate has been offered a fulltime position by the employer who gave them an industry work placement during their studies.
How long do work placements last?
The duration of work placements vary from 36 hours to 965 hours, depending on the course you are studying.
Will I get paid?
You are not usually paid work placements undertaken. However, many international students have been offered part-time work in their field of study, following the completion of a successful work placement.
Who finds the work placement?
TAFE SA will find or assist in finding you a suitable work placement. Having offered work placements through our courses for many years, we have well established relationships with a large number of employers and industry leaders in Adelaide.
