This equipment and software is available for use at all TAFE Queensland locations.

Placement

IMPORTANT NOTICE: 
While TAFE Queensland will make every effort to minimise disruption to study, the current COVID-19 pandemic situation and subsequent restriction of access to some health care facilities during this time, may cause delays with vocational placement and completion of this course.

Future students are advised that access to public and private health facilities or organisations in your State for vocational placement assessment may require evidence of commencement or full vaccination for COVID-19.

If you are not currently employed or volunteering in the community services industry, during your course you will be required to complete vocational placement so you can start practising your new skills in a real-world environment. You’ll be required to work shifts determined by your placement provider, and these can include early mornings or late nights, any day of the week, including public holidays. TAFE Queensland will arrange suitable placements to ensure adequate opportunity to complete the necessary practical assessments. Please discuss any queries regarding this with your delivery team.

Completing placement is compulsory, and you will be expected to manage family and work commitments in order to complete your shifts. You are required to complete 40 hours of placement to satisfy this component of your qualification.

Need to know

For all students who are undertaking courses that include Vocational Placements in a high risk workplace, Queensland Health has directed that students must declare your COVID-19 Vaccination status and evidence to either TAFE Queensland or the placement provider. 

This may require you providing us or the placement provider information on:

  • Your vaccinate status
  • Last date of vaccination
  • Evidence of vaccine status

Where this information will be collected as part of your application and / or enrolment process.  Any data collected will be managed under the TAFE Queensland Privacy Policy.

This requirement is in place for all students in affected courses, including TAFE at School students.

Those students who have a medical contraindication may be unable to complete the vocational placement component of their course. This means you may not be able to meet all of the requirements of your course and may not be able to graduate or receive your qualification.

If you have any questions or concerns with this requirement, please contact our COVID hotline on 07 3307 4789.
