This course includes an integrated work placement component of a minimum of 120 hours. We organise the practical placement for students enrolling in this course.
It is required that our students obtain a Working with Children Check and undergo a National Police Check prior to commencing the practical placement. Practical placement may not be possible if a check that is carried out contains adverse outcomes. In this instance, you may not be able to complete your qualification and your employment opportunities may be affected. If you are aware of, or concerned about anything that may appear on a Police Check or Working with Children Check, please discuss this at your enrolment interview.
