Vocational Placement is a requirement for many trade courses. A student is placed in a real life work site and receives practical training and experience on site to complement their in-class learning. It is through the vocational placement that international students can put the skills that they learn in the class room to the test. It is a similar to a standard trade apprenticeship which most Australian domestic students undertake.
Vocational Placement is offered in most trade courses such as: Carpentry, Joinery, Automotive Mechanical, Automotive Electrical, Engineering Fabrication, Bricklaying, Boat Building, Chef, Electro-Instrumentation and many more.
Below is a short video where we visit one of our Carpentry students during his carpentry vocational placement:
Generally speaking students will need to undertake at least 360 hours throughout the duration of their course in order to pass a provisional skills assessment and apply for the graduate work visa.
