Work experience and tertiary placement

Tertiary placements

Tertiary placements are for students who are completing a current tertiary course and are required to complete a work placement as part of their studies.

A tertiary placement provides the opportunity to apply academic learning in the workplace and develop work readiness. A placement is unpaid and can be project or time-based.

Tertiary placements must be a requirement of the course completion and endorsed by your tertiary institution.

Priority will be given to people who live or study in Banyule.

Year 10 work experience

If you are a secondary school student and are interested in working for local government, consider applying for a Banyule work experience placement.

Your work experience placements introduce you to the daily life of our employees. You will gain hands-on experience in the day-to-day operations of one of our departments.

If you are offered a place, you will need to send us a completed Work Experience Arrangement form. Ask for one from your school Work Experience Coordinator.
