Hear from Ned, a student placement from RMIT
Ned, student: At about 27 I thought what’s practical, what’s something I’m good at, what I care about, and I sort of came to a Master of Social Work.
As part of a Master of Social Work or any social work degree, you have to do 1000 hours of placement. So that’s something that the Work Integrated Learning Program really assists you with, it creates the online forum where you can apply for that easily and see what’s going to be suited for you. And it’s all about just setting you up to join the workforce.
My placement was with Sacred Heart Mission and it was fantastic. I remember just feeling so welcome in my first week there.
Trevor, Workforce Development Manager: If we look at the students who come to Sacred Heart Mission from RMIT, the biggest impression that they leave is, they’re just amazing. They come to us job-ready.
Ned: I felt welcome and towards the end of it, they asked me to come in for a job interview. Two weeks later, they offered me the job, and I’ve been there for 10 months.
